Protect yourself against the seasonal flu... get vaccinated
Submitted By Renee Snyder
Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. It is recommended to have a yearly flu vaccination because it is the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.
"Last year the recommendations for the flu vaccine were chaotic, uncertain, and ever changing. This year there is ample vaccine, only one shot is needed, and it covers the usual flu plus the novel flu. Everyone older that six months should get it," says Robert McCabe, M.D., Infectious Disease.
As a service to our community, St. Rose Hospital will be offering free seasonal flu vaccines for adults 18 years and older at St. Rose Hospital, Hospital Boardroom, 27200 Calaroga Avenue, Hayward. No appointment necessary.
For more information call the Education and Training Department, St. Rose Hospital, at (510) 264-4068.
