Check Shots Off Your Back-to-School List

New shoes, backpacks, and school supplies! Oh, my! There's so much to do to get ready for another school year. If you have a child entering kindergarten or 7th grade, you can take care of school shots at our walk-in immunization clinics Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 11 AM to 4:30 PM at 1930 Ninth Avenue, Helena. No appointment is needed. Immunizations are provided on a sliding-fee scale for those who qualify, and we bill all insurance providers. Find out what shots your child may need.

Extreme Heat Can Cause Extreme Illness

Just as we take steps in winter to prevent hypothermia, we should be aware in summer of the dangers of hyperthermia. That’s when your body temperature soars because it can’t compensate for heat in the environment. Heatstroke, heat exhaustion, and heat cramps are all types of hyperthermia. Your risk can increase depending on the outside temperature, the humidity, your general health, and your individual lifestyle. Learn how to prevent, recognize, and treat heat illnesses.
