National Handwashing Awareness Week

December 5, 2022 0
With all the colds, flus, and viruses going around lately, it’s only appropriate that this week is National Handwashing Awareness Week! It’s the perfect time to remember the importance of hand hygiene to help stop the spread of these seasonal illnesses. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, handwashing can prevent 1 in 5 infections, including the flu.
Experts recommend washing your hands with soap and clean water for at least 20 seconds. Follow these easy steps: Wet, lather, scrub, rinse, dry.
As for us, our team is under the tent from 9 am to 1 pm Monday through Friday, testing for COVID. Just drive on up and we will take care of you.
Tuesday afternoons, we are giving COVID vaccines from 2:00 to 5:00 pm, no appointment needed. These are the bivalent vaccines, which are targeted to be effective against the Omicron variant. If your child needs a COVID booster, call us at 964-1251 to get your little one scheduled.
Have a great week!
