Golden Corral's Good Health Recipe for the Flu Season
Date:9/28/2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Golden Corral restaurants are serving up flu shots for a third year in a row to Jacksonville seniors, aged 65 and older. Six area restaurants, in partnership with five community and health care organizations, are offering a cast iron recipe for good health: getting the flu shot, not the flu.

According to Dr. Terry D. Hashey, medical director of First Coast Family Medicine and clinical spokesperson for Jacksonville's third annual Golden Corral Flu Campaign, "Influenza kills an average of 36,000 people each year and hospitalizes more than 200,000. You don't need to be one of them." In addition to a flu shot, seniors will receive a gift bag filled with health care information, a variety of goodies, Golden Bucks and Buy-One, Get-One-Free "Early Bird" coupons.

"Flu shots are safe and cannot cause the flu," says Dr. Hashey. "A simple preventive measure like getting a flu shot can save your life." Nurses from the Duval County Health Department and Maxim Health will administer flu shots while supplies last. Partners from FMQAI, Florida's Medicare Quality Improvement Organization, and the Department of Elder Affairs will be on hand to assist and provide health care educational materials at the following Golden Corral Restaurants:

Monday, October 22: 7043 Normandy Boulevard, 32205 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Tuesday, October 23: 9070 Merrill Road, 32225 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Wednesday, October 24: 4250 Southside Boulevard, 32216 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Friday, October 26: 11470 San Jose Boulevard, 32223 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

This material was prepared by FMQAI, the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization for Florida, under contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
