This morning, I joined the pharmacy team at New Rochelle’s Stop and Shop to get my flu shot. There’s more information in this press release. Getting your annual flu vaccine is always a smart thing to do, and this simple step takes on special urgency right now, as we all work to avert a potentially dangerous interaction between the flu and COVID-19 and ensure that our health care system doesn’t get overwhelmed this fall. Having taken aggressive measures to confront COVID since March, New Rochelle understands the high stakes better than almost any community in America, so let’s once again act responsibly by getting ourselves vaccinated.
