Elderly and disabled can get flu shot at home
SYCAMORE – Home Bound Healthcare of Sycamore will provide flu and pneumonia vaccines to people in their homes again this year.
“Many frail, elderly or at-risk people have difficulty leaving home. This service will provide them with the protection they need without the tremendous difficulty they face getting out in the community,” said Chris Welch, regional administrative consultant for Home Bound Healthcare.
The Center for Disease Control recommends getting the vaccine as soon as it becomes available because it takes about two weeks to build up immunity. The immunity will last throughout the entire flu season. Anyone over the age of 65 or under the age of 65 with a disability that makes it difficult for them to leave home is eligible to receive the flu shot in their home.
