is the time to get your flu shot,” says Paula Foster RN, Manager of
Infection Control/Occupational Health at the VNA of Care New England.
Flu is widespread throughout Rhode Island and The Center of Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months
and older get a flu vaccine each
year. Getting a flu vaccine is the first and most important step in
protecting against this serious illness. Thousands of Rhode Islanders
have already rolled up their sleeves at public clinics throughout the
state and additional clinics have been added. No appointment is necessary.Thursday, January 24 and Friday, January 25, 2013
