Lunch and Learn - Fall Prevention and Shingles Shot Clinic coming!
Our next "Lunch and Learn" event is coming on Wednesday, May 2 from 11:30 AM to 1 PM in the Fellowship Hall. The topic is Fall Prevention.
Please let Pastor Sue know if you are planning to attend; RSVPs aren't mandatory but since lunch is being provided (at no cost), we'd like to know how many people to prepare for.
Soon we are also going to start the process of a shingles shot clinic. The new shingles vaccine is more effective than the previous one, and it's now a recommended (and usually covered) vaccination for folks over 50 (with the last vaccine it was 60). Even those immunized by the previous generation vaccine are recommended for the new vaccine (check with your doctor, of course). We will be pre-registering folks soon for this, so we can get their insurance checked so there are no surprises. The new vaccine is a two-shot process with each dose administered about 3-4 months apart, so we hope to have the first round done in time to let the second dose coincide with the next flu shot clinic in the fall.
