Flu Shots Available at Participating Broome County Senior Centers
Influenza, commonly called “the flu”, is more than just a bad cold. The flu is a very contagious virus that can cause symptoms such as fever, chills, body aches, sore throat, cough, and headache. People age 65+ and those with chronic health conditions are more at-risk for developing complications, which include sinus or ear infections, pneumonia, sepsis, hospitalization and even death.
The best way to protect yourself is to get vaccinated every year. The flu shot is safe, effective, and cannot give you the flu. The Broome County Office for Aging and Price Chopper are sponsoring flu clinics at the following senior centers during the month of October:
