H1N1 Flu Shot
Release Date: May 20, 2010

Still haven’t been vaccinated for the H1N1 flu? 

The vaccine is now widely available for the entire population.  Everyone is urged to get vaccinated, so don’t wait!

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website (updated May 7, 2010):

The CDC recommends influenza vaccination as the first and most important step in protecting against the flu. Flu is unpredictable, but sporadic cases of 2009 H1N1 continue to be detected in the United States and 2009 H1N1 viruses are being reported in other parts of the world. Also, it’s possible that the United States could experience early 2009 H1N1 flu activity next season, before seasonal flu vaccine is available. Therefore, CDC continues to encourage 2009 H1N1 vaccination for anyone who wants to protect themselves against 2009 H1N1. This might be especially applicable to people who are travelingto areas where 2009 H1N1 is occurring, or people who are at higher risk of flu-related complications, but have not yet gotten a 2009 H1N1 vaccine. This includes young children and people 65 years and older. In addition, certain health conditions  increase the riskof being hospitalized from 2009 H1N1, including lung disease, like asthmaor chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes, heart, or neurologic disease, and pregnancy.

Come and get your H1N1 Flu Shot at the Mahwah Senior Center – 475 Corporate Drive on Thursday June 3rd from 10 am to 12 noon.
