HealthCare Partners Nevada
HealthCare Partners Nevada, a leading medical network across Southern Nevada, will provide flu shots for community members during a flu shot clinic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 18 at the organization’s Siena clinic. Community members can attend the event to receive their annual flu vaccine.
In addition to flu vaccinations, HealthCare Partners will provide tours of the clinic during the event. The organization will also continue to distribute free tickets to the public for a Four Tops concert on Saturday night at the South Point Arena, which HealthCare Partners is hosting with Humana. The concert corresponds with the Fun After 55 Expo, a free, daylong health fair starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday at the South Point Arena that will offer information about how to stay healthy and active after the age of 55.
Fall marks the beginning of flu season, so it is highly important for community members to protect themselves with a flu shot this time of year. HealthCare Partners is providing flu clinics throughout Southern Nevada this season as part of its Total Care Model, a team-based approach to health care that strongly focuses on prevention. The organization also seeks to educate community members about their health care options by providing free tours of the local clinic.
Individuals 65 and older are at high risk of developing serious flu-related complications, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is estimated that 90 percent of seasonal flu-related deaths in the U.S. occur among people 65 and older, as a result of seniors’ weakened immune systems.
