Kids, do you know two big ways to keep from getting sick?
If you watched the video, you already learned one way. Can you say what it is?
That’s right! It’s washing your hands.
Before you eat
After you use the bathroom
Cough, sneeze, or blow your nose
Moms and Dads, if kids DO get sick when their doctor's office is closed, remember the emergency room at Batson Children's Hospital is always open. We have Mississippi's only dedicated children's ER. Here, our team is led by pediatricians trained in emergency care.
If your child has symptoms of a more common illness, such as flu or earaches, we may direct you to the Fast Track area for treatment sooner.
