The federal Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that all adults age 60 and older be vaccinated against shingles. If you’ve reached your 60th birthday, talk to your healthcare provider about receiving the vaccine. Shingles (herpes zoster) is a painful, blistering skin rash due to the varicella-zoster virus, the virus that causes chickenpox. Shingles may develop in any age group, but you are more likely to develop the condition if: you are older than 60; you had chickenpox before age one; your immune system is weakened by medications or disease.
We are in receipt of needed funds for our center and for the Meals for Wheels program from the Community Foundation of the Ozarks. The director and the board certainly appreciate this financial donation.
Until next week, have a good one!
