Close to 200 people, including senior citizens and families, participated in Senator Felder’s free flu shot event today at the Senator’s office in Midwood. Constituents from across Senator Felder’s district received the 3-in-1 flu shot administered by nurses from Beth Israel Medical Center.
“I was absolutely delighted to partner with Beth Israel Medical Center to provide this invaluable and free public health service,” said Senator Simcha Felder (D-Brooklyn). “So many New Yorkers either don’t yet have health insurance or simply cannot afford to shell out for a physician’s co-payment. Providing these kinds of services are essential, and give a much-needed boost to people’s physical and financial health.”
The flu shot event is part of a series of programs being held this fall by Senator Felder. Upcoming events include a reduced-fare MetroCard event for senior citizens on Wednesday, October 9, and a blood pressure screening on Monday, November 4.
