|Senior Health Fair|
The 2011 Seasonal Influenza and Pneumonia Immunization Program begins at the annual Senior Health Fair on Wednesday, October 5 in Cooper River Park, starting at 10 a.m. and continuing through 2 p.m. The event is free to Camden County residents 60 years and older. In addition to seasonal flu shots, the Senior Health Fair will feature dozens of health information tables, games and prizes and lunch for all senior citizens who attend the annual Senior Fair, now in its 17th year. The flu shots are provided for no-out-of-pocket cost. Seniors that register with the Camden County Division of Senior and Disabled Services will enjoy a complimentary lunch at the fair. Call 1-800-955-2446 toll-free to RSVP. “The launch of the flu shot program is traditionally coordinated with the senior health fair because men and women age 65 and older are among the high priority groups for annual shots,” said Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the Camden County Health Department. Freeholder Rodriguez reminded seniors receiving MEDICARE to bring their Medicare ID cards with them.
