The Preventative Care and Screening Program aims to prevent illness and screen you for medical conditions which may be easier to treat if caught early.
You are encouraged to get screening for the following:
- Immunizations such as the Flu shot, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Shingles, Tetanus, Pneumonia and others.
- Cervical cancer screening: females who have ever been sexually active should have a PAP test every 3 years from age 21 to 69.
- Colon cancer screening: all patients 50 to74 years old should do a fecal occult blood test (a stool sample you collect at home) every 2 years.
- Breast cancer screening: all women 50 to74 years old should do mammogram testing every 2 years.
