    Florida Council on Aging invites you to join us for a live webinar to learn how to protect yourself as flu season starts. Both Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19 are contagious respiratory illnesses caused by different viruses and some of the symptoms are the same. Dr. Beth Malko, our Florida Blue Medicare Chief Medical Officer, will discuss why it’s so important to catch up on preventive care you may have delayed due to COVID-19, including getting all needed vaccinations.

    Walgreens will have a pharmacist representative on the call to answer questions as well.

    Don’t miss this opportunity hear the latest updates and get your questions answered!
