Flu Season is Right Around the Corner!
Aug 30, 2013 / Geriatrics / Seniors

Older adults need to take special precautions during flu season. Since our immune systems weaken as we age, people over 65 are more susceptible to getting the flu. For seniors, flu symptoms are also much more serious and can even be deadly. In fact, 90% of flu-related deaths and more than half of flu-related hospitalizations occur in people age 65 and older. That’s why getting a flu shot is so important for seniors. Remember, your Medicare plan will cover the cost of your flu shot. Reliant Medical Group’s current Flu Clinic Schedule is listed below. Be sure to check our website for any updates. Most importantly, make sure you get vaccinated this flu season!
