Covid Shots Here!  sign up now!

May 12th, 2021 | Covid, Vaccines

PMA is not yet running vaccines out of our office, but community clinics are up! we will be volunteering. See you there?

Equivax is running clinics and a great logistical staff. PMA had volunteers on the 16th of May and it ran great. You can sign up with them by clicking their name above. You can also go to myturn.ca.gov for the entire universe of vaccination clinics. Once things settle out, we may be offering the vaccines in our office, but please do not delay with the first vaccine. This will allow our kids the stable school, sport, travel, and family experiences that they have been missing.

 

The Flu, a Guide for Parents

“Influenza (also known as flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. Flu is different from a cold, and usually comes on suddenly.”

The CDC offers several handouts online about how to reduce your risk of contracting the flu and what to do if you or a family member contracts the flu. See below for more information:
