That's why she's already signed up to get a preventative shot later this month.
"One year I didn't get it and I almost died from it," Miller said last week. "Now I get it every year. I think flu shots do help."
Ruth Sensenig agreed.
This year, it will be easier for both women to get their shots, thanks to an arrangement between a local senior center and a pharmacy.
"I know we didn't do it last year, and I'm not sure how long it's been since we offered it," said Carly Bryant, director of Quarryville's Next Gen Senior Center.
This year, a representative of Rite Aid came to the center and asked if the store could set up a clinic there.
"We had to have at least 10 people sign up for it for Rite Aid to do it," said Michelle Reeves, the center's activities director. "We already have at least that many."
Some years ago, Lancaster General Health had provided the service at the senior center.
"We have done it in the past, and we thought it would be a good idea to do it again," Bryant said. "We thought it would be best to put it on and open it to the public. Anyone can come out and take advantage of this. It's for anybody."
The clinic also gives the center a chance to increase its public outreach.
The shots will be available at the center, 184 S. Lime St. (Solanco Fairgrounds) starting at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 13.
"We wanted to do it before the flu season really starts," Bryant said.
The shots will be free to anyone who has insurance. The event is open to the public. Appointments are not needed. The center will set up a privacy area for the inoculations.
