The Tale of Medicare and The Flu.

We are moving into the season of colds and flu if your elderly that’s the time when you should really be caring for your health. Take a look at this excerpt from Forbes magazine regarding those on Medicare and the flu shot.

Getting the flu or COVID is serious but getting both can be deadly.
