It’s time to get your flu shot — after all, state Sen. Daniel Squadron has gotten his.
The Brooklyn Heights Democrat will co-sponsor another round of gratis vaccinations next Thursday, Nov. 18, at Long Island College Hospital.
Yes, needles are involved, but Squadron says the moment of pain is worth it.
“I promise it doesn’t hurt at all,” the freshman fibbed. “Everyone should get a flu shot, especially senior citizens and people with pre-existing health concerns.”
Ever the influenza enforcer, Squadron recently headed to the Eileen Dugan Senior Center in Carroll Gardens to oversee an earlier round of injections, smiling as Carol Rembert screamed as she got jabbed by Nurse Judy Farrell.
In the end, she was happy, Squadron said.
“It’s better to stop by the hospital for five minutes in November than be stuck in bed for two weeks in January!” Squadron said.
To say nothing of infecting your co-workers when they’re on deadline (yes, we’re talking to you, intern!).
Free flu shots at Long Island College Hospital [339 Hicks St. between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street in Cobble Hill, (718) 802-3818], Nov. 18, 10 am–1 pm. Call for reservation.
