Officials with the Dorothy Visser Senior Center said there will be flu shots available at the senior center on Friday, Nov. 9, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. or until the center runs out of the vaccine.
The CDC recently reported that last flu season, 2017-18, was a “high severity” season, and based off data it analyzed, adults across the nation reported a 6.2 percent drop in getting vaccinated for the flu.
“However, interpretation of these results should take into account limitations of the survey, including reliance on self-report of vaccination status and decreasing response rates,” a press release from the CDC stated.
The Dorothy Visser Senior Center, located at 117 Avenida Victoria, is open 6 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 949.498.3322 for more information.
