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.

 

Congressional Action to Fund Community Health Centers Needed

Several months ago, the U.S. Congress extended short-term funding for the nation’s community health centers. Unfortunately, however, the funding package did not provide the long-term certainty and sustainability that health centers need to do our work.

The COVID-19 epidemic has added new urgency to providing stable, long-term funding to community health centers across the United States. The recent stimulus package passed by Congress fell considerably short of addressing health center revenue lost due to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, and only provides a short-term fix to the Community Health Center Fund. As Congress turns its attention to another relief package, it’s critical that community health centers receive additional assistance and the assurance of five years of sustainable funding.

We ask that you take a moment to contact our Congressional representatives and voice your support for prioritizing increased, long-term funding for community health centers in the next stimulus package. Take action now!

Thank you for your support.
