ER Urgent Care Centers to Expand Vaccination Programs

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - October 31, 2007) - ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUC) (ERUC) has announced a major expansion in its current vaccination program. With the major outbreak of the deadly MRSA staff infection reaching Florida at an alarming rate, ERUC has greatly expanded the number of vaccinations it now provides. "We have intensified patient education programs as to the various methods used to avoid exposure to the deadly bacteria," said Dr. Ronald Lubetsky, Medical Director of ERUC. Flu vaccinations, although unrelated, have also seen significant increases since the outbreak of MRSA. We have also experienced increases in HPV vaccinations. Recent publicity has brought HPV to the forefront of preventing cervical cancer in women. All of these factors are now driving new patients into ER Urgent Care centers on a daily basis. We have experienced entire families arriving for numerous vaccinations. Our ERUC ID program has become very popular with these new patients. The card will access patient records that contain all the vaccination information. Community officials have applauded ERUC for its efforts in educating in the prevention of the MRSA bacteria.
