Zika Virus and Pregnancy
Due to the Zika virus, a disease that is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised pregnant women to postpone/cancel travel to Zika outbreak areas. Those who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant should check with their health care provider before traveling to any countries that are affected by the Zika virus.

Protect Yourself From the Flu
According to the Minnesota Department of Health, "Everyone 6 months of age and older should get the flu vaccine every year." A flu shot (or nasal spray) helps protect you from getting the influenza virus and passing it on to people who are at risk of getting very sick: babies, pregnant women, elderly people and those with chronic diseases.
To schedule an appointment to receive your flu vaccine, please us at 507-794-3691.
