Flushing, NY, August 15, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- As August is National Immunization Month, Waterview Nursing & Rehabilitation Center reminds the community how vital it is to stay current with the proper vaccines and shots as required by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). This is even more critical for our nation’s seniors, who are unfortunately at a higher risk of receiving communicable diseases.
For this reason Waterview Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Flushing’s fastest growing nursing home, recommends everyone receive the flu shot and other vaccines against serious diseases such as measles and tuberculosis.
It is important to talk to friends and family and spread the word about the importance of immunizations. Many assume that vaccines are only for kids, while nothing can be further from the truth. Adults 65 and older need to get a special shot to prevent pneumonia.
