Health fair important to community
For others, the cost is $15 for a flu vaccination and $25 for a pneumonia vaccine.
We hope the community will take advantage of this offer.
In the United States, 114,000 people are hospitalized each year, and about 36,000 die due to the flu.
More than 90 percent of the ones who die from influenza are 65 years or older.
Getting a flu shot can prevent not only sickness but, possibly, even death.
While flu season ranges from November through March, pneumonia can strike at any time and is the leading cause of preventable death among individuals who are 65 years old and older.
