City News
Oakland County launches at home flu shots for older adults
Oakland County Health Division is launching a new program to vaccinate homebound residents 65 years and older for influenza in their homes beginning Tuesday, Oct. 27. Appointments are required. The Health Division’s Nurse on Call at 800-848-5533 will start accepting appointments on Oct. 22.

Public Health Nurses will visit residents’ home during a designated appointment time. Nurses can provide individuals 65 years and older a senior higher dose or regular flu shot.

Flu and COVID-19 are both respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. Getting a flu vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, however the flu vaccination has many other benefits:
  • Helps prevent flu illness
  • Reduces risk of flu-associated hospitalizations
  • Has been shown to reduce severity of illness if you do get the flu
  • Protects you and the people around you including those more vulnerable to the disease
Payment options include Medicare, Medicaid, most Blue Cross Blue Shield plans and Blue Care Network, and additional insurances. No one will be denied access to services due to lack of insurance; there is a discounted/sliding fee schedule available.
Radar Speed Signs
Drivers and residents may notice new Radar speed signs, also known as driver feedback signs around Lathrup Village. These are traffic calming devices designed to slow speeders down by alerting them of their speed. They are being used across the country, and around the world, because they are effective at slowing speeding drivers down.
The two new Radar Speed Signs were deployed today. One is currently positioned on Goldengate at the corner of westbound 11 mile. The second one is at the corner of Santa Barbara and Cambridge. These signs will rotate throughout the city in an attempt to reduce the traveling speed throughout the neighborhood.
