Many childhood diseases are preventable with vaccines. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that vaccines can now protect infants and children from 14 diseases before the age of two. Please talk with one of our board-certified family medicine physicians about having your children immunized to protect them and others from many contagious diseases, such as measles, mumps, diphtheria, whooping cough, polio, chickenpox and more. Call today for an appointment at 952-432-6161. For more information, visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention



Your pain is better, so you no longer need those pain pills. But what do you do with them? You don't want to leave them in a place where your children can get them. You aren't supposed to flush them, nor should you toss them in the garbage. April 27 is National Prescription Drug Takeback Day. The pharmacy at the Apple Valley Medical Center has a convenient collection box for expired or unused medications, and we can handle any of your future medication needs. For more information about National Takeback Day, check with your local police department or visit DEA National Take Back.
