Integrity Urgent Care First Aid Handbook - Ear Infections
An ear infection is an inflammation of the middle ear that occurs when fluid builds up behind the eardrum. Ear infections are usually caused by bacteria. Although adults can get ear infections, they are far more common in children, and five out of six children will have at least one ear infection by their third birthday.

Integrity Urgent Care Health Handbook – Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease
Hand, foot, and mouth disease is a virus (sometimes referred to as the coxsackievirus), that commonly affects children under the age of five. Occasionally, older children and adults can be affected as well. Although hand, foot, and mouth disease can be incredibly uncomfortable for your child, it is rarely serious, and complications are very rare. Because it is a virus, there is no cure, but treatment can help ease his or her symptoms.

It’s Time to Get a Flu Shot!
Have you gotten your flu shot yet? The CDC recommends that everyone get vaccinated before the end of October.
