S.E.T. Ministry provides case management and health education in 14 high-rise buildings owned and operated by the Milwaukee Housing Authority. The residents are primarily low to moderate income elderly and disabled adults. In 2005, the Aurora Visiting Nurse Association conducted 11 flu clinics and provided 459 immunizations at these high-rises.
We're so thankful for the Aurora VNA nurses who come here to immunize our residents. Many of them are vulnerable to the deadly complications associated with the flu.
In so many cases, it's a real challenge for our residents to get around the city. If we did not bring the clinics to the apartment buildings, there's a good chance that residents would not get their annual flu shot.
There is no way we would be able to get as many people vaccinated without the Aurora VNA.
