Almost a year has passed from a larger community awareness about COVID-19 and we all know, and have experienced, a lot more than we ever thought possible. In that year, several pharmaceutical companies raced to make a safe and effective vaccine to fight COVID in the general population. With larger numbers of the vaccine flooding the market, you may have questions from our team at Integrity Urgent Care about what to do next.
Our doctors, nurses, and staff entered the medical field to help people, both those in our community and any others who reach our clinic doors. As our communities navigate COVID-19, we continue to be ready to treat our patients and to provide accurate and up-to-date information about this virus. New information guides our practice as we work to serve you and your family at each of our Integrity Urgent Care Clinics.

Whenever you travel and for whatever reason, Integrity Urgent Care has a few tips for travel safety.

At the store, at the park, in classrooms, and in social settings, there are simple ways you can help protect your kids.
We cannot help but offer what has become a cliché and exhausting statement, that 2020 has not shaped up the way any of us expected. Families, schools, businesses, churches, and more have had to adjust and adapt with increasing flexibility. How do you recover some of that normal with a vacation in the middle of everything taking place? Our Integrity Urgent Care team is looking for a break too, and we have a few suggestions for taking that getaway for yourself or your family.
