The summer is saying goodbye to us. Boaters are taking their last cruises. Others are getting ready to place their patio furniture in storage. Our children and grandchildren are headed back to school. Even years after we graduate from school we sense invigoration and new beginnings in the air.

It is also that time of year to get a flu shot. I know. It is not something we look forward to like we do for cider mills, apple picking and football games. However, we can be grateful that we have the chance to prevent serious illness. Not everyone believes that flu vaccine works. However, according to the Canadian Medical Association Journal:  "Repeated vaccination for influenza was highly effective in preventing severe and fatal infection caused by influenza in older adults. "

There are many locations which help to make it convenient to get a flu shot. County health departments, senior centers and some of our PVM villages offer access to flu vaccine clinics. Check with our PVM staff members for more information. Be smart and savvy. Go for it!
