79 Seniors got free flu shots

Press Release

(Woodland, CA) - October 13, 2017 - Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced the success of the 10th Annual Yolo County Senior Resource & Crime Prevention Fair. On Thursday, October 12 from 9am to 12pm, Yolo County Seniors attended this large-scale event which was held at the Woodland Community Center, 2001 East Street, in Woodland.

Over 200 seniors attended the fair and were given valuable resource and crime prevention information. There were 68 agencies and outreach partners present to distribute this information about resources and services available to seniors in Yolo County, including all of the police departments in Yolo County as well as Legal Services, In-Home Healthcare and Assisted Living. Crime and fraud prevention was at the forefront of this event with a goal to inform, educate and empower the senior citizen population to avoid victimization.

District Attorney Jeff Reisig stated “We are committed to community outreach efforts that increase awareness to help prevent fraud-related crimes that affect our seniors.”

At this year’s event many of the seniors received flu shot vaccinations through a collaboration with the Yolo County Health Department. This was an excellent opportunity to provide this public service to seniors who often can’t afford to pay for flu shots on their own. Over 60 seniors participated in the document shredding service which was onsite. There was a free raffle for the seniors that offered many cash prizes, gift baskets, and two document shredders to safely dispose of personal documents.
