Every year, the medical staff at Banner Health see many patients who have been impacted with infectious diseases, including mono, E coli, HIV and Lyme Disease.
The most common complaint, however, is the flu or influenza.
Immunization is key to preventing disease among the general population. Vaccines benefit both the people who receive them, and the vulnerable, unvaccinated people around them, because the infection can’t spread through the community if most people are immunized.
In addition, immunizations reduce the number of deaths and disability from infections, such as measles, whooping cough and chickenpox.
Speak to your doctor to determine if you have received all recommended vaccinations.
Below is a list of some of the infectious diseases we treat at Banner Health.
Each individual may experience symptoms differently and the method of treatment can be determined by a number of different things. If you have questions or concerns, please consult your physician.
