DEARBORN, Michigan – The City of Dearborn reminds residents that the Health Department was closed June 30, 2011 due to budget considerations. The City no longer offers flu shots.
Other resources for flu shots residents may consider include Wayne County Health and Human Services (734-955-3900) and ACCESS Community Health and Resource Center in Dearborn (313-216-2200).
On Saturday, October 22, flu shots for those 18 and older will be offered during a free clinic at the ACCESS Community Health and Resource Center, 6450 Maple St.
The clinic will be 10 a.m. – 3 p.m and is sponsored by ACCESS and the Health Alliance Plan (HAP) of Michigan, Senior citizens may choose to attend the Dearborn Senior Health and Information Expo on Nov. 9, during which $5 flu shots will be available from DMC (Detroit Medical Center) from 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
The expo will be in the Hubbard Ballroom of the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave. There is no charge for admission to the Expo, which also includes a wide range of health screenings.
Kudos to Dearborn for the Dearborn Senior Health and Information Expo. There should be one of these every month in every city throughout the country. There is so much that we have to look at when we are dealing with the whole subject of senior’s health. What applies to people in their 30’s or 40’s doesn’t necessarily hold true for seniors. It’s great to have articles and sites like this whose focus is on seniors health. After all most of us (hopefully) will become one some day.
