We provide immunizations and routine screenings at all five of our medical center locations. These services are offered five days a week, on a walk-in basis or by appointment. Walk-in patients are seen on a “first come, first served” basis and early arrival is suggested. Services are available for children and adults. If you’re not sure what vaccinations or screenings you might need, we can help advise you when you call for an appointment or come in to receive services.
