The Madison County Senior Center’s Flu Shot Clinic takes place this Thursday from 9:30 a.m to 1:30 p.m. with CVS pharmacist, Lee Norris.
Call (850) 973-4241 to make an appointment.
Medicaid and some insurance will pay for the flu shot. The Senior Center is located at 1161 SW Harvey Greene Drive, just off State Road 14 South.
The best protection from the flu for senior citizens, according to the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, is to receive a flu vaccination every year. Ninety percent of the flu-related deaths and more than half of flu-related hospitalizations occur in people 65 and over.
