JCC to offer "Flu Shot Q&A" lunch program Aug. 28

The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center will hold a “Flu Shot Q&A” program, as part of its monthly Senior Lunch and Learn series, on Friday, August 28 from noon to 1:30 pm at the JCC of Syracuse on 5655 Thompson Rd. in DeWitt. A guest speaker from Rite Aid Pharmacy will give a presentation on the different flu vaccines that will be available this fall as well as wellness information for seniors to help prepare for cold and flu season. A question and answer session will follow.

The August 28 program will begin with a hot kosher lunch followed by the flu shot presentation. Thanks to the Green Family Foundation’s sponsorship of this session, lunch will be free for any senior who remains for the presentation. Otherwise there is a $3.50 suggested contribution for the lunch portion. There is no cost to attend only the guest speaker’s portion which will start at 12:30 pm. Registration for lunch is required. RSVP by calling 315-445-2360 by noon on August 27.

The JCC Lunch and Learn series was launched earlier this year and offers useful and timely information on a range of issues facing seniors. The free monthly meetings feature local professionals covering topics on health, wellness, finances, legal matters, caregiving and more. The program is funded by a grant from the Green Family Foundation.

The JCC’s Lunch and Learns are an added once-a-month component to its successful Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult Dining Program, which offers seniors, age 60 and over, a nutritious and well-balanced kosher meal weekdays at noon for a $3.50 suggested contribution. It’s the only senior nutrition program available outside of New York City serving kosher meals five days per week. The program is funded in part by the Onondaga County Department of Aging and Youth and the New York State Office for the Aging and Administration for Community Living. For more information, and to RSVP for a lunch, call 315-445-2360.
