MURRAY ANNOUNCES FLU IMMUNIZATION PROGRAM
FOR TOWN SENIORS
Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray has announced that the
town, in cooperation with Nassau University Medical Center, will be
providing flu immunizations for resident seniors, age 60 or older, at
various senior centers.
“Hempstead Town is once again partnering with Nassau University
Medical Center to provide this valuable immunization program to area
seniors,” said Murray. “The health and well-being of our seniors is a
top concern to us here in the Town of Hempstead. The flu vaccine could
prevent seniors from catching the flu or may lessen its severity.”
Flu vaccines are provided with no out of pocket cost to the
seniors. The administrating hospital will bill insurance companies;
however, there will be no co-payments for those receiving flu shots.
The pre-registration process is currently underway and openings are
currently available at all centers. Seniors must register in person at
their local senior center.
Immunizations will be conducted from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. as
Tuesday, November 13, Green Acres Senior Center, 400 Flower Road,
Valley Stream (872-8810)
Wednesday, November 14, Franklin Square Senior Center, 1182 Martha
Monday, November 19, Elmont Senior Center, 138 Elmont Road
“As it is recommended that adults over the age of 60 receive a flu
shot every year, I encourage seniors to take advantage of this
important health program,” concluded Murray.

Center or call the Department of Senior Enrichment at (516) 485-8100.
