The Health Department will bill Medicare for eligible patients as well as private insurance, if applicable. County Health Department Director Tom Belcuore stated;” Every year, as many as 36,000 US citizens die from complications of influenza. Yearly vaccination of the population at highest risk prevents needless hospitalization and death.” Individuals at greatest risk for complications of influenza are: persons older than 50, persons with chronic medical conditions, children age 6mosto 5 years, pregnant women, and persons living in nursing homes or other long term care facilities. In addition, household caregivers of the above groups and health care workers should also be vaccinated. For further press information, please contact Tom Belcuore at (352) 334-8892.
