It is estimated that approximately 80% of influenza deaths in the United States occur among those age 65 and older. According to the CDC, getting vaccinated annually is the best way to prevent acquiring the flu, and even if it’s not prevented entirely, the vaccine greatly reduces the likelihood of hospitalization and severity of symptoms.
DMCC offers an annual flu vaccination clinic, and this year it will take place on Wednesday, October 17 between 10am and 3pm in the Del Mar Community Building on 225 9th Street. The vaccine is specialized for the senior population and is free for Medicare patients. We’ll provide juice and cookies to enjoy while you wait. Just walk into our office on 10/17, or call or email the DMCC office so you can reserve a time slot to get the shot!
Thanks to a Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant awarded by San Diego County, DMCC has built an all-new technology lab inside the Del Mar Community Building for local seniors. Featuring both Apple and Windows platforms, the Digital Den will be a site for instruction, cognitive training, open community use, and more.
Come on in to the Digital Den during the following non-instruction hours to surf the Internet, work on your memoir, catch up on social media, and/or stay connected.
Mondays, 2pm - 4pm
Tuesdays, 2pm - 4pm
Thursdays, 9am - 11am
We’re recruiting volunteers to lead classes and workshops in the Digital Den, so please contact our office if you can help!
