Flu + You Program Provides Prevention Resources
November 4, 2015
As people age, their immune systems weaken. Even if they feel healthy and are active, a weakened immune system can put older adults at risk for influenza (“the flu”) and related complications.
If you know an older adult or caregiver in need of education about how to protect themselves against the flu, one good resource is the National Council on Aging’s Flu + You. The program focuses on the seriousness of influenza, the importance of prevention, and available vaccine options.
