Harmon-y Pediatric Clinic offers tips

for preventing the spread of the EV-D68 virus

Children with asthma are highly susceptible to this respiratory virus

 

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma State Department of Health, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have confirmed the circulation of the EV-D68 virus in Oklahoma. With symptoms similar to the common cold, this virus can be detrimental to the health of young children. Oklahoma City Indian Clinic (OKCIC) and its Harmon-y Pediatric Clinic are offering the following tips for Oklahomans to help stop the spread of this virus.  

 

“This virus can have an adverse effect on young children, especially for those who suffer from asthma,” said Harmon-y pediatrician Dr. Janice Hixson. “Unfortunately, there isn’t a vaccine or antiviral treatment available, but there are simple steps we can take to ensure we avoid spreading this particular virus.”

 

The Harmon-y Pediatric Clinic treats registered American Indian patients ages 17 and younger with a variety of services, including immunizations, routine health supervision visits and same-day sick appointments. Routine, sick and same-day appointments are available now by calling (405) 948-4900 ext. 633 or ext. 638. Harmon-y pediatricians have also opened a Young Adult Clinic for those ages 18-21 located at Oklahoma City Indian Clinic’s main building, 4913 W. Reno Ave. Appointments are available now by calling (405) 948-4900 ext. 308.
