It’s Flu Season — Remember to Get Your Senior Flu Shot!
The cost is covered by Part B Medicare coverage. The season has gotten off to an early start especially in the South and the strain that is spreading fastest is a very serious one. It’s still not too late to get vaccinated. Monitor the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) influenza website
for up-to-date incidence and prevalence reports, symptoms, and warnings. This is a health issue to be taken seriously.

New Transportation Terms Beginning in 2020.
Fearrington Cares volunteers will take villagers to the grocery store, the bank, an attorney or to a medical appointment. Our services are well utilized and the increasing number of requests is challenging our drivers many weeks of the year. Beginning in 2020, we have 2 important requests of those we assist: we ask that grocery shopping be completed in 90 minutes and going forward we can no longer provide either next day or same-day rides. Ride requests for medical appointments may be made as much as 2 weeks in advance; please call the Center with no less than 2 days’ notice to request transportation assistance from our volunteers.
