Get Healthy. Stay Healthy.
As part of the many services provided to residents of New York City, the Visiting Nurse Service of New York often teams up with the NYC Department of Health to give free flu shots at senior centers, churches and other locations around the city. If you're 50 or older or suffer from a chronic health problem -- see if you can get a flu shot now (seasonal).

Helen Marshall now has formed the Youth Services Board, comprised of teens aged 14-19, to help counsel the borough president on matters that are important to them. We invite all residents to become more involved in shaping the youth agenda.
