Seniors, Get Free Flu Shots

Senior Citizens who want to keep the pink in their cheeks without losing the green in their wallets should check out the free preventive health care services offered by Medicare.  Medicare will pay for the flu shot once every flu season.  For example, if you received a shot in January 2011, you could be inoculated again in October/November 2011 for another flu season.  The cost is free if your doctor or provider accepts Medicare.  These flu shots are offered at most pharmacies and at Dallas County Health and Human Services (www.dallascounty.org) from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday-Friday.  Call 214-819-2163 for more information.
