  • Flu Shot Awareness Month

    When you get a flu vaccine, you have a choice. There are vaccines that cover 3 strains of the influenza virus and vaccines that cover 4 strains of the influenza virus. Four-strain flu vaccines may offer you broader coverage by covering an additional strain. When you and those you love get your flu vaccines, be sure to ask your pharmacist or healthcare provider if the 4-strain flu vaccine is right for you and your family.

    National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need your help!

This section address the most common questions and concerns that arise during the first months of life.
