In an economy when more people are searching for affordable health care, Natomas residents can get routine medical needs met at a local clinic.

Sutter Express Care is celebratingits 5thanniversary inside the Rite Aid store on Del Paso Road. The walk-in medical clinic is open to anyone 18 months of age or older and can treat common illnesses and give immunization services.

One of the valuable immunizations Sutter Express Careoffers is the whooping cough (Tdap) vaccine. State law now requires all students going into grades 7ththrough 12th be vaccinated for whooping cough. Natomas Unified School District classes started recently and students have 30 days to get the vaccination or they will not be allowed to attend school until the vaccination can be verified.

We understand that this may be a very confusing time for parents who need to have their children receive Tdap vaccinations,” Sutter Express Care Nurse Practitioner Tyla Healton said.

Healton said there is no need to be anxious about fulfilling this new state requirement. She encourages students to bring their yellow immunization records with them to make sure all vaccinations are up-to-date.

“We are here to take the fear and guesswork out of the process so both students and families are at ease going into the new school year,” said Healton. 

The Sutter Express Care clinic is open weekdays 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and weekends 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2751 Del Paso Road. The clinic charges a $69 flat fee per visit. No health insurance is required, but many health plans are accepted.
