For this reason The Allure Group, Brooklyn’s fastest growing nursing home consortium, recommends everyone receive the flu shot and other vaccines against serious diseases such as measles and tuberculosis.
It is important to talk to friends and family and spread the word about the importance of immunizations. Many assume that vaccines are only for kids, while nothing can be further from the truth. Adults 65 and older need to get a special shot to prevent pneumonia.
“Vaccinations should be non-negotiable for all segments of our population, especially our seniors. If you take a look at what’s going on in the world as we speak, with the deadly and dangerous Ebola outbreak in Africa, we see that skipping shots is simply not an option,” added Melissa Guglielmo, Chief Operating Officer at The Allure Group.
The Allure Group is a fast growing group of Brooklyn-based skilled nursing facilities and rehabilitation centers providing a high standard of care for patients of all ages and conditions. The Allure Group currently operates over 2,100 beds throughout New York CIty.
