Along with regular doctor's visits and being aware of changes in your body's health, a healthy lifestyle can help prevent many common health problems.
Protect against the flu
The flu vaccine is the best protection against the flu. If you get the flu vaccine, you are 60% less likely to need treatment for the flu by a health care provider.
Adults now have dental coverage through Virginia Medicaid. Good oral health contributes to good overall health. With this new coverage, adults can get regular exams, cleanings, x-rays, fillings and so much more.
