It’s Tick Season!

It’s tick season in Virginia, keep a lookout.  We’ve been removing a growing number of  ticks from patients in recent weeks.

Take measures to protect your family–wear long sleeves, and pants rather than shorts.  Do a tick check after every outdoor exposure.  Lyme disease isn’t transmitted immediately by a tick.  If you remove it quickly, your risk of Lyme disease is close to zero %.

If you find a tick, stop in to McLean Immediate Care for removal.  We have the proper instruments to reduce the chance of remaining tick parts in the skin.
