October 17-Flu Clinic at Milford Senior Center

Deepa Joseph, Director of the Milford Health Department has announced a Flu Clinic will take place at the Milford Senior Center, 9 Jepson Drive on Wednesday, October 17th from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Please do not arrive before 9:00 a.m.

The Health Department will offer Fluzone High Dose for individuals 65 years of age and over at their Flu Clinics this season, including the Senior Center Flu Clinic.  Fluzone High Dose is the first and only influenza vaccine designed specifically for people 65 years of age and older.  Persons in this age group have a higher risk of complications from influenza.  Aging can decrease the body’s ability to have a good immune response after getting the influenza vaccine.  A higher dose of antigen in the vaccine helps provide older adults a better immune response and therefore better protection against the flu.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) details that each year more than 425,000 related hospitalizations and up to 36,000 flu-related deaths occur.  It is estimated that 52% of the hospitalizations and 78% of the deaths occur in people 65 years of age or older.

To register for a flu shot at the Senior Center, contact our Insurance Specialists John Cornelius or Laura Daneault at 203-877-5131 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Please have your insurance information available when you call.
