DESSERT GALLERY OFFERS FLU SHOTS
September 14, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsHouston – With flu season approaching, Dessert Gallery Bakery & Café plans to do their part to help keep Houstonians healthy by partnering with the Texas Vaccine Institute to administer flu vaccines at Dessert Gallery locations in the Upper Kirby District and Sugar Land. Vaccines will be available Saturday, September 29, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Dessert Gallery at 3200 Kirby Drive, and the following Saturday, October 6, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at their new Sugar Land store, located at 2260 Lone Star Drive at Sugar Land Town Square. Shots are $20.
“The single best way to prevent getting the flu is to get vaccinated each fall,” said Sara Brook, owner of Dessert Gallery. “And of course everyone knows that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, hence the tie-in with Dessert Gallery,” explains Brook. As a single mom and entrepreneur, Brook relates well to the busy lives many Houstonians lead and wanted to provide customers with a convenient way for them to get their annual flu shot in just a matter of minutes.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends flu shots for just about everyone, but particularly elderly people, young children, and people with certain health conditions who are either at high risk of having serious flu-related complications or who live with or care for high-risk persons.
