Gather Safely This Holiday Season & Donate to our Virtual Food Drive

We hope you & your family and friends are staying safe and have remained healthy throughout the current COVID-19 pandemic. We wanted to give everyone a simple reminder to remain vigilant as COVID-19 positive test rates are rising; the primary reason for the increases is now known to be related to family and friend gatherings.

Please encourage COVID 19-SAFE family and friend gatherings!

 

HELP US HELP OTHERS: For every $10 donated we can provide 40 meals for our neighbors in need.

We continue to be OPEN & SAFE

If possible, outside gatherings are better than inside, especially if the beautiful Florida weather permits. Please keep in mind you may not be familiar with someone’s friend who comes along for the day (you may not know who they have been in contact with) to attend your family and friends gathering. Regardless, hand washing and encouraging “space” is OK to do!

Vascular Vein Centers is considered an essential medical practice will continue to remain open to serve our patients in a safe environment. We encourage all our patients to share your experience with your family and friends.
