Catch up on preventive care

Have you put off routine doctor visits this year? If so, now is the time to catch up on any preventive health services you missed.

A good way to stay healthy

Preventive care includes screening tests, vaccines and wellness checkups that help you stay healthy.

It includes things like:

  • Mammograms and Pap tests for women
  • Screenings for heart disease and cancer
  • Childhood vaccines and well-child visits
  • Flu and pneumonia shots
  • Routine checkups where you can get advice about diet, exercise and safety

Most health plans cover preventive care services like these. So don't put them off. It's safe to visit your doctor again — and doing so helps keep you and your family healthy.

Get your flu shot!

Almost everyone 6 months or older should get a flu shot every year — and that's more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you haven't had your vaccine already, now is the time! Lake Regional makes getting a flu shot easy, with vaccines available at each of our seven primary care clinics, as well as our five pharmacies.
