Clinics in Provo, Payson, and American Fork
Now is the time to protect yourself and your family before the holidays. Vaccinations are for everyone! Influenza, pertussis, measles, hepatitis -- these are just a few of the diseases that can be prevented by vaccination. But don't way ... it takes 10 days or more for vaccines to offer full protection, meaning you still have time before the holidays.
