Flu Clinics Are Available!

The best way to prevent the flu is to get a flu shot. We recommend the flu vaccine for anyone with a chronic medical condition, age over 50, all children and pregnant women, and anyone else who wants to protect themselves each year.

We start flu vaccination in the fall each year, and continue through the flu season.  We offer the following flu shot clinics on weekdays and Saturdays:

 

  • Thursday, October 2   3pm to 6pm
  • Monday, October 6   2pm to 6pm
  • Wednesday, October 8   9am to 12 pm
  • Saturday, October 11   9am to 12pm
  • Tuesday, October 21   2pm to 6pm

To schedule your flu shot, please call the office at 878-1008 or send us a message from your portal.

To help prevent the spread of flu:

  • Cover you cough.
  • Wash your hands often and well.
  • Keep yourself healthy with rest, exercise, and eathing healthy foods.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Stay home if you get sick.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.

Did You Know?

Did you know that Evergreen Family Health is open on Saturday?  So, if you’re sick on a weekend, you can call us and be seen in our office.  We are open on Saturday specifically so that you you don’t have to go to the Emergency Room or elsewhere for care.  Our Saturday hours are 9 am to 2 pm (or later, if needed).

Did you also know that if you are sick any day Monday through Saturday, we will see you that same day?  We designate at least one practitioner to stay after hours and see all patients who are sick and need to be seen that day.  You may not get an appointment with your regular primary care provider, but you will be seen on the day that you are sick.

Lastly, we always have a physician on call so if you need help after hours, you can always call the office and you’ll be able to reach the doctor on call.

Of course if you are having a medical emergency, you should always call 911.
