FLU SHOTS AT THE LIBRARY
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Remember Your Shot and Forget the Flu!The flu season is rapidly approaching and more than likely in the past youíve suffered from the dreaded flu bug. Fortunately you donít have to let the flu virus make you miserable. You can fight off the flu with a fast and safe vaccination administered by our licensed nurses.
Pneumonia Vaccine:The pneumonia vaccine will be available at all of our clinics. Two additional groups that should receive this vaccine have been identified by the Centers for Disease Control: any adult between the ages of 19 and 64 years of age who 1) smokes and 2) has asthma.
Quadrivalent Flu Vaccine: Available in both the flu mist and the traditional injectable vaccine. The quadrivalent vaccine offers an additional level of protection protecting against four strains of the flu virus instead of three. Flu mist is intended for those between the ages of 2 and 49.
Fluzone High-Dose flu vaccine is designed specifically for people 65 years of age and older. Human immune defenses become weaker with age, which places older people at the greater risk of severe illness form influenza. Aging decreases the bodyís ability to have a good immune response after getting the influenza vaccine. Data from clinical trials comparing the regular flu vaccine to the High-Dose vaccine indicate that a stronger immune response occurs after vaccination with the High-Dose.
Both Flu and Pneumonia shots are covered by Medicare Part B. Borgess nurses will be acceptingALL Medicare Part B Plans and most Commercial Insurances. You can also pay with Cash, Check, Visa and MasterCard. They will provide a receipt for those that require one. A price list for vaccines will be sent out as soon as it is available.
Public sites will be listed in our direct flu mailer and at www.flushot.borgess.com

To celebrate National Library Week (April 14-April 19), we roamed all over Parchment and filmed people reading the children's book "The Library" by West Michigan's own SARAH STEWART and DAVID SMALL. This proves that Parchment is full of very good sports and great readers! Our thanks to the 64 awesome people who participated.
