Time to Get Your Flu Shot — and Other Vaccines!

Flu season is here, even as we continue to deal with COVID-19 pandemic. This year, it is more important than ever to protect ourselves and others from the flu. Not only will flu vaccination provide protection against the flu, but it will help with diagnosis of COVID-19, if you are to become ill with flu-like symptoms. A flu shot will protect you throughout the flu season. (Inactivated flu vaccine does not contain live flu virus, so getting the flu from this vaccine is not possible.)

This is time to get caught up on any other vaccinations you or your child may need as well. As we begin a new school year, even though remote, this is a great time to get vaccinated to keep kids safe and healthy. Getting vaccinated now will help protect your child from serious, preventable illness. If you are a senior, talk to your health care provider about getting a pneumovax vaccine as well.

Call (360) 676-6177 today to make an appointment for your needed vaccinations. To learn how we’re keeping patients and staff safe during routine medical visits for vaccines and other health care needs, click here.

 

November is Diabetes Awareness Month

Unity Care NW is recognizing National Diabetes Month this month. The focus this year is youth who live with diabetes. Diabetes affects nearly 200,000 youth under 20 years of age in the United States. It is one of the most common chronic conditions experienced by youth. The important thing to know about diabetes, no matter what your age, is that it can be managed to promote optimal health. It’s important to get regular medical care, make lifestyle changes, and follow a recommended treatment plan. That can make all the difference!

If you are living with diabetes and haven’t had a check-up recently, call (360) 676-6177 to make an appointment today.
