Flu and Pneumonia Vaccinations
Every year in October, the Senior Department offers Flu and Pneumonia vaccinations for Medicare beneficiaries at no cost. The program is also open to the general public for a nominal fee. Medicare beneficiaries should bring in their Medicare cards along with a photo id. You must make an appointment for this service. Contact the Senior Department for more information on dates and times of availability. 20154 Flu and Pneumonia shots will be available Tuesday, October 11th, 9:00 PM - 3:00 PM by appointment.
A limited amount of medical equipment such as walkers, canes, crutches, port-a- potties and wheelchairs are available to seniors and disabled persons for loan of a minimal fee of $1.00 a month. Wheelchairs must have a deposit of $25 that is refundable upon the return of the wheelchair. Donations of medical equipment are also accepted.
Limited appointments are offered for senior citizen residents of Bloom Township to receive podiatry services. Foot and nail care are discussed during consultations and are available during the morning and afternoon hours every month for your convenience. A local podiatrist volunteers his time for this valuable service to seniors. Foot problems commonly develop in people with diabetes and can quickly become serious so diabetics are encouraged to come in and see the doctor. Contact the senior department for appointment availability.
