Regal Heights kicks off the 2013 Influenza Vaccine campaign

Posted October 14, 2013

Kevin Place, Chief Operating Officer, receives flu vaccine

Thomas Younghans, Administrator, receives flu vaccine

Dr. De Jesus, Medical Director, receives flu vaccine

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, influenza (“flu”) is a contagious disease that spreads around the United States every winter, usually between October and May. Flu is caused by the influenza virus, and can be spread by coughing, sneezing, and close contact. Flu can make some people much sicker than others. These people include young children, people 65 and over, pregnant women, and people with certain health conditions, such as heart, lung, or kidney disease, or a weakened immune system. Flu vaccine is especially important for these people and anyone in close contact with them. Flu vaccine is the best protection we have from flu and its complications and also helps prevent spreading flu from person to person.

With flu season just around the corner, Regal Heights kicked off its Influenza Vaccine campaign by giving the first flu shots to Kevin Place, Chief Operating Officer, Thomas Younghans, Administrator, and Dr. DeJesus, Medical Director. Talk about leadership by example! Regal Heights staff is encouraged to receive the flu vaccine to better protect the residents.
