Covid-19 and Flu vaccines and boosters are available at Warm Springs Community Health.  You can call to schedule an appointment at (541) 553-2610.  Vaccinations are the best way to protect from both illnesses.   With RSV cases also on the rise – it’s important to recognize that prevention steps help with all these respiratory illnesses.  Practice good hand washing, wear a mask if you are sick, around someone sick or in a crowded place,  and stay home if you are sick – regardless of the illness, to help prevent others from getting ill.   Finally – have COVID-19 home test kits on hand.  Test kits are available at the Emergency Management office next to the old Elementary Library.
