Fighting the Flu

September 30, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Help us help you fight the flu! Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, reducing the spread of respiratory illnesses, like flu, this fall and winter is more important than ever. To help the community prepare for flu season, York Hospital will host an online forum, “Fighting the Flu,” on Wednesday, September 30, from 12-1 p.m. To join this informative community meeting, please sign up via the Eventbrite link below.

The webinar will be presented in three parts, each led by a different York Hospital clinician:

  • Dr. Jessica Stevens, director of emergency medicine, will talk about the science behind vaccines and how they help to safeguard public health.
  • Dr. Michael Vinograd, lead physician at Pediatric Associates of York Hospital, will focus on pediatric primary care and the importance of keeping childhood immunizations—including flu shots—up to date.
  • Erich Fogg, director of walk-in care, will explain several convenient options for obtaining flu shots at York Hospital, including a new Drive-Thru Flu Clinic at York Walk-In Care.

The program will conclude with a Q&A period. (Directions for submitting questions in advance will be provided to all attendees via email.) A recording will be available for public viewing on the hospital’s YouTube channel after the event.
