FIGHT THE FLU!!!
On average, 36,000 Americans die from influenza every year, and more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications. The Visiting Nurse Association flu clinics help to ensure that our community is protected. The VNA provides flu and pneumonia vaccination clinics at local businesses, schools, places of worship, residential communities and public locations each fall. It matters that you get a flu shot this season as a good step toward health. However, it also matters WHERE you get your flu shot. When you get your flu shot from the Visiting Nurse Association, revenue from the program is reinvested back into the community to provide home care.
