"We want the children and families in our community to stay healthy this season," Sabrina Freeman, Divisional Director of Operations - North Central Division, for The Little Clinic said. "Keeping your hands clean is one of the most effective ways to keep illness at bay."

The Little Clinic operates healthcare centers inside Kroger stores in Hilliard located at 4656 Cemetery Road and 2525 Hilliard Rome Road (Silver Horn Centre).

According to the Centers for Disease Control, washing your hands with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand cleaner is an important way to prevent the spread of illness and infection.

They are authorized to diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common illnesses such as bronchitis, respiratory, sinus and ear infections and the flu, as well as for minor injuries. The clinics also provide services such as physicals, back-to-school and sports exams, screenings and a number of vaccinations.
