Flu Shots with NY Giants’ Shaun Rogers at Duane Reade
October 8th, 2013 by Christen
Everyone knows that Duane Reade is your friendly, neighborhood pharmacy for all your heath-related needs. But did you know that they also offer convenient flu shots as well? New York is known for unpredictable winter weather that requires New Yorkers to remain protected at all times. No one knows about being protected better than New York Giants’ Defensive Tackle Shaun Rogers, who stopped by the 72nd Street Duane Reade location to promote healthy living, preventative healthcare and flu vaccinations.
Wondering if you should get vaccinated? Everyone who is at least 6 months of age should get a flu vaccine this season not only to protect yourself but also as protection against the flu to more people. While everyone should get a flu vaccine this season, it’s especially important for some people to get vaccinated. Those people include the following:
- People who are at high risk of developing serious complications (like pneumonia) if they get sick with the flu.
- People who have certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes, and chronic lung disease.
- Pregnant women.
- People younger than 5 years (and especially those younger than 2), and people 65 years and older.
