When working in the long-term care industry, you must manage flu season very carefully. Individuals who are 65 and older have a greater risk of serious complications from the flu compared to other age groups. Our nurse account managers have been busy over the last two months administering flu vaccines to the residents in the communities we serve. 

 

Because long-term care communities are visited daily by healthcare workers, family members, friends, service providers and even new residents, influenza can be easily spread in the long-term care environment.

 

As the pharmacy provider to many long-term care communities throughout the Florida panhandle and lower Alabama, Guardian Pharmacy of NWFL takes a proactive approach this time of year to keep the spread of this virus to a minimum.

 

Guardian Pharmacy of NWFL is happy to provide this service to residents in the communities we serve. If you are interested in learning more about this service, please contact our pharmacy at (850) 306-3003.
