October 30th: Taking Care of You!
Falls can happen to anyone, but as we age, the risk increases. Falls are the number one cause of injury admission to hospitals and 1 in 3 adults over 65 will fall at least once each year, but the good news is that most falls are predictable and preventable. November is Fall Prevention month – join us to learn how to reduce the risk of falling. Also, as we get older, our immune system can get weaker. This puts us at a greater risk for certain diseases, including influenza, shingles
and pneumococcal disease. Public Health will discuss the benefits of immunizations. Publicly funded vaccinations will be available for influenza, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, pneumococcal and shingles for ages 65-70. Vaccines which are not publicly funded will also be available for a fee (call 613-966-5500 for cost).
