Once More, With Feeling: Get Your Flu Shot!

Since January 1, Sinai Hospital physicians have diagnosed 70 cases of influenza, and 37 cases have been diagnosed in the past week. That's more cases of flu in one week than the entire month of December. Sinai ER-7 physician Dov Frankel, M.D., discussed the flu rise on WJZ-TV.

If you have not received your flu shot, it's not too late. All LifeBridge Health employees may come to Employee Health to receive their flu shot, which is free. Those who work in health care are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated, as are children and anyone with a compromised immune system.
