What's Happening at ACP?

Flu Season 2018

This flu season has been particularly harsh for our kids and older adults. Remember to wash your hands, cover your coughs and sneezes, and drink lots of water! If your child has been exposed to the flu, encourage clear fluids (popsicles, water, apple juice) and have them wash their hands as much as possible. Tylenol and lukewarm baths help with fevers. If you need dosing instructions or the package is confusing, feel free to call one of our offices.
