With a limited number of flu vaccines available, Assemblywoman Millman ensured as many residents as possible received the vaccine by making appointments for each shot. The nurse managers from LICH were quick and efficient in administering the vaccine, and many people commented that it was virtually painless.
“I am especially thankful that this year Long Island College Hospital was able to help us provide nearly 200 local residents with the seasonal flu vaccine,” Millman said. “For six years, I have been fortunate to be able to offer this service to local residents that might not get vaccinated otherwise. Senior citizens and those with compromised immune systems are most at risk from the seasonal flu and should receive vaccines every year.”
