Not Too Late for Flu Shot, Emergency Management Podcast Says

(TNS) — It's not too late to get a flu shot.

That's the message New Yorkers need to know from the New York City Emergency Management Department's latest podcast series.

Dr. Demetre Daskalakis, deputy commissioner for the Division of Disease Control at the city Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, was the featured guest on the latest episode of "Prep Talk."

"Prep Talk" engages listeners on emergency management topics, as hosts talk to guests about keeping New York City safe and prepared before, during and after emergencies.

Dr. Daskalakis discussed the flu vaccine and debunked myths about this season's flu virus. The podcast identified who is at risk to contract the flu and whether you can get sick from the flu shot.
