As we’re sure you’re well aware, the majority those who serve in the hospitality industry’s trenches don’t have the luxury of getting paid time off. And that means many of those folks go to work while sick. That’s not very reassuring as Restaurant Week arrives smack-dab in the middle of what the Center for Disease Control is calling the worst flu epidemic in a decade. But rest assured, the Restaurant Opportunities Center of Philadelphia is rising to the occasion. On Tuesday, January 22, they are teaming with Thomas Jefferson University to provide free flu shots for restaurant workers. Shots will be administered at the Center for Urban Health at 211 South Ninth Street, Suite 313 from noon to 4 p.m. Those interested should register by calling (215) 867-9747, or via email.
