Fall is Here and so is Flu Season
Influenza is a respiratory infection that can cause serious complications, particularly to young children, older adults and people with certain medical conditions. Flu shots are the most effective way to prevent influenza and its complications. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months of age or older be vaccinated annually against influenza. We agree!
We will start giving flu shots September 1st. A pediatric dose will be available, as well as a high-dose for adults age 65 and older. Call the office at 541-687-8581 to set up a time that works for you. If you happen to get your flu shot elsewhere please send us a message through the patient portal and we can record it in your chart.
Clinic hours will be held on the following dates:
11/18/17: Meg Hamilton, FNP-C & Jan Lintz, PA-C
12/09/17: Meg Hamilton, FNP-C & Jan Lintz, PA-C
