Flu Shot


Crockett - Texas - US


CROCKETT, Texas - Jan. 24, 2014 - PRLog -- Winfield Rehabilitation & Nursing Center will be providing free flu shots to seniors 65 and above on January 22 from 10 AM - 2 PM. “We are concerned for the health and well being of our seniors whether or not they are currently a resident of our facility” stated Greg Neel, Administrator at Winfield Rehabilitation & Nursing Center.  With 25 states reporting moderate to high flu activity, this year’s strain is expected to be particularly deadly and citizens are advised to get flu vaccinations as soon as possible. Kathy Ciresi, VP of Business Development for Advanced Healthcare Solutions, a consortium of Texas area skilled nursing facilities of which these facilities are members, believes this is the strongest strain of the flu since 2009’s swine flu. “Anyone can be affected by the flu. But those who are young or elderly and especially those nursing prevailing conditions such as diabetes and asthma are particularly susceptible. I hope Garland area residents come out for our free flu shot event, as the best defense against H1N1 is to be vaccinated early.”

Flu Shots will be distributed From 10:00am – 2:00pm
