State Senator Daniel Squadron, the influenza enforcer, recently headed to Eileen Dugan Senior Center in Carroll Gardens to oversee an early round of gratis influenza shots.
“I promise it doesn’t hurt at all,” the Senator jokingly told the Brooklyn Paper. “It’s better to stop by the hospital for five minutes in November than be stuck in bed for two weeks in January!”
The Brooklyn Heights Democrat isn’t done offering free shots throughout the borough of Brooklyn. The freshman Senator recommends that everyone get the shot, especially seniors and people with pre-existing health concerns.
The free influenza shots caravan is making its way to Cobble Hill shortly. On November 18th from 10AM to 1PM at the Long Island College Hospital, nurses will administer free flu shots. The hospital is located at 339 Hicks Street between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street. The hospital recommends that individuals call ahead for a reservation. Their number is (718) 802-3818
