As part of our series of Passport Health Flu Week blog posts, we look at the importance influenza vaccination plays in senior health. The National Council on Aging has been working to help seniors and others understand the importance of influenza vaccination for years. The organization is currently running it’s Flu+You campaign to help raise awareness of the need for a flu shot among this demographic.
Today, we are featuring a guest post by Kathleen Cameron, BS Pharm, MPH, Senior Director at the National Council on Aging. Kathleen has more than 25 years of experience in the healthcare field as a pharmacist, researcher and program director focusing on falls prevention, geriatric pharmacotherapy, mental health, long-term services and supports, and care giving.
