Nursing facilities that meet eligibility and agree to participate will be allocated to one of two CDC recommended infuenza vaccines for adults.  Facilities will aslo receive a free supply of vaccine for staff.  The Foundaiton will receive a donation of $100 for each facility that enrolls in this study based on their referral.  If you are interested in this important project, please contact the study coordinating center, Insight Therapeutics, LLC, at 757-625-6040, or This email address is being protected from spambots.
