Florida Health Care Community Stepping Up for the 2007-2008 Flu Season
Date:10/5/2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The good news is that there is an abundance of flu vaccine," reports Dr. Terry D. Hashey, Medical Director of First Coast Family Medicine and clinical spokesperson for Jacksonville's third annual Golden Corral Flu Campaign. "The bad news is that despite ample supplies last year, Florida (at 63.2%) is still ranked below the national average of 69.3% for flu shot conformity." Given the three million Medicare beneficiaries that call Florida home, the vulnerabilities for people over 50 and complications from the flu (like hospitalizations and even death), it makes good sense to get a flu shot. "A simple preventive measure like getting a flu shot saves lives," says Dr. Hashey. "And, in Jacksonville, getting a flu shot has never been easier."

Six area Golden Corral restaurants, in partnership with five community and health care organizations, have teamed-up a third year in a row to provide flu shots to Jacksonville seniors, aged 65 and older, as well as to members of their family, care givers and members of the community at large. In addition to a flu shot, seniors will receive a gift bag filled with health care information, a variety of goodies, Golden Corral Golden Bucks and a Buy-One, Get-One-Free "Early Bird" coupon. "Wouldn't you take a preventive action if you knew it would save your life or prevent you from being hospitalized?" asks Dr. Hashey. "Get your flu shot this year."
