When you go to them for preventive care or diagnosis and treatment, you are developing your medical relationship and being treated by a practitioner who knows your health history.

As  you arrive for an in-person appointment, it is crucial that all being screened are absolutely straightforward about any symptoms. This will allow us to ensure care is provided appropriately and safely. For more about our in-person processes, please see our Reopening of Services page

2020 Seasonal Flu Shot Information

It’s time to get ready for the fall and winter flu seasons. It’s likely that we will see the spread of the regular flu virus alongside the virus that causes COVID-19. This means that getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are important benefits of getting vaccinated for the flu, even though these flu shots will not protect against COVID-19.  

  1. Flu vaccines have been shown to reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death. 
  2. Getting a flu vaccine can also save healthcare resources for the care of patients with COVID-19.

NMC is ready to help our patients get flu shots quickly and easily this year with options for both adult and pediatric patients. Call (802) 524-8805 today to make your appointment for a flu shot at Northwestern Primary Care. Click here to learn more about Northwestern Pediatrics flu shot appointments.
