Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) September 23, 2013

Heritage Woods of Rockford, a BMA affordable assisted living community, is partnering with the Winnebago County Health Department to host a flu shot clinic from 10 a.m. to noon on Oct. 17.

The community, which is located at 202 N. Show Place Dr. in Rockford, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.

“Skip the doctor’s visit and get your flu shot at Heritage Woods this year,” said Yvonne Peterson, Director of Marketing for the community.

Those interested in getting a flu shot should bring photo identification and insurance information. Cost is $25 for anyone who would like to pay for the shots out-of-pocket.

Refreshments will be served, and attendees will have an opportunity to win door prizes.

Certified nursing assistants, working under the direction of a licensed nurse, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Meals, housekeeping and laundry are among the included services.

"Residents also benefit from all of the opportunities that are available to socialize with friends and neighbors and to participate in activities and special events," says Peterson.
