Influenza activity has increased significantly this week

Influenza activity has increased significantly this week nationwide and also in El Paso. We are seeing many cases of both Type A and Type B influenza. The CDC recently commented this year’s vaccine was 48% effective. That means it prevents about half the cases we would have if there were no vaccine. The best protection remains prevention and the best prevention is an annual flu vaccine.

Summit UC finishing final phase of expansion

It’s that time! Get your annual flu vaccine now. The CDC recommends everyone over 6 months of age receive an annual flu vaccine. We have this year’s vaccine in stock. Don’t wait. Get it now. We are finishing our third and final phase of expansion this month. We have moved our entrance back to our north side while we add a covered area for our new waiting room. The project is underway and should wrap up around the middle of October.
