From the release:

“As long as budget cuts and rising insurance costs threaten the delivery of health care in our state, I will continue to provide programs at my conveniently-located district office that will help you maintain your good health. While you’re visiting us, feel free to discuss matters of community or personal concern with my office staff, or resolve a consumer complaint with the help of my consumer advocate, or let us know how you feel about important legislative issues,” Kruger stated.

An appointment is required. Call Kruger’s district office at (718) 743-8610 to reserve your spot.

  1. Not in jail yet. Waiting for January court date that could determine his future as a State Senator.
    Get the shot while you can.

  2. i take the flu shot every year, but, hey, I wouldn’t trust someone in Kruger’s office to put a needle in me. It might be some weird drug that will turn me into a Democrat…

  3. I’m sure you’re joking, but in the event that you may not be: Medical professionals from Beth-Israel Medical Center-Kings Highway Division will be administering the flu shots. Senator Kruger’s staff members, who are very nice people regardless of what your political lean is, will not be handling the needles themselves. Negative as the news about him is around here, he’s still got a job to do, and should not be faulted for providing a free service to his constituents.
