COVID-19 and Flu Updates

Updates about Covid-19 and Flu from LCH Health and Community Services.

For Your Safety

The safety of our patients and our staff is our priority.

When you Arrive at LCH:

  • Every person who comes in to an LCH facility will be asked to wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose upon arrival.

  • The Patient Services Representative (PRS) will ask a series of questions related to COVID-19 symptoms.

  • At this time, we ask that you please come alone to your appointment. Patients who require additional assistance, such as children, patients with special needs, or elderly patients, can come to their appointments with one support person.

Updated Covid-19 Guidance

Stay up-to-date with current safety guidelines for you and your family: visit www.CDC.gov/coronavirus for more information.  Read our Patient FAQ about common COVID-19 questions as of January 18th, 2022. The CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health continue to require wearing of masks in health care settings, whether or not you are vaccinated. Thank you for wearing a mask during your visit to our health centers!

Flu Vaccines

The best way to reduce your risk from seasonal flu and its potentially serious complications is to get vaccinated every year.

Patients with upper respiratory and flu like symptoms can be seen in all 3 of our offices.

The best way to reduce your risk from seasonal flu and its potentially serious complications is to get vaccinated every year. Learn how to prevent the flu here: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/prevent/index.html

Influenza (also known as “flu”) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Learn more about flu sympotoms here: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/symptoms/index.html

  • CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older get vaccinated every flu season. Children 6 months through 8 years of age may need 2 doses during a single flu season. Everyone else needs only 1 dose each flu season.

  • It takes about 2 weeks for protection to develop after vaccination. There are many flu viruses, and they are always changing. Each year a new flu vaccine is made to protect against the influenza viruses believed to be likely to cause disease in the upcoming flu season.
