August is National Immunization Month

What’s one of the most effective ways to protect yourself and your family against illness?  Get immunized!

Summer is a great time to get your child up-to-date on immunizations before the new school year starts. Childhood immunizations can protect your child against 14 serious childhood diseases, including measles and whopping cough, as well as flu, meningitis, and cancer.  Immunizations aren’t just for kids. Getting an annual flu shot in the Fall can protect you, your family, and your neighbors and co-workers throughout the flu season. Your health care provider may recommend other vaccines as well, based on your age and health conditions. Take advantage of National Immunization Awareness Month. Make an appointment today to get vaccinated. Call us at (360) 676-6177.

Celebrate National Health Center Week – Aug. 4-10

Each year we recognize the mission and work of the nation’s community health centers during National Health Center Week.  Community Health Centers provide affordable, high-quality health care services to 28 million Americans.

This year, we invite you to join us on Thursday, August 8th at the Pickford Film Center for a screening of “Broken Places”.  This documentary revisits children who had experienced trauma years ago and examines the long-lasting effects.  Tickets are free but must be obtained prior to the film time in order to secure your spot.  Reserve your tickets here.

We will also hold our 3rd Annual Healthy Kids Art Contest during National Health Center Week.  We invite our youngest patients to put their artistic talents to work.  Kids up to age 10 are eligible to enter, and entry forms will be located in our health center lobbies. Thanks to Village Books’ sponsorship, four winners will receive a $25 Village Books gift card!
