Boise, ID, February 20, 2024 – Influenza B cases have surged in the Treasure Valley, according to data gathered at multiple Primary Health Medical Group clinics.
“We saw more than 250 cases of influenza in our clinics last week, and the majority of those were influenza B,” explained Ann Weiss, M.D., “We’ve seen some pretty ill patients with this strain, so we encourage those with symptoms to get tested and receive anti-viral medication if they qualify. For healthy patients who haven’t received their annual flu vaccine, the CDC continues to recommend getting vaccinated as long as virus is spreading.”
Primary Health is excited to welcome Lee Parsons, M.D. to our medical group. Dr. Parsons is a board-certified physician who has been practicing in the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology since 1993. He attended medical school at the University of Southern California and completed his residency at the University of Washington.Read More

Visiting a dermatologist on a regular basis is an important step in the prevention of skin issues and maintaining the health of your skin.

Boise, ID, December 21, 2022 – Idahoans who have not received a flu vaccine this season are urged to do so now, as record numbers of influenza cases and high positivity rates are detected at Primary Health clinics across the Treasure Valley.
“We saw more than 650 cases of Influenza A and B in our clinics last week,” said Ann Weiss, M.D., Clinical Director for Primary Health Medical Group. “Our positivity rate of 44% for influenza A is substantially higher than the national average of 25% and it illustrates just how much flu is circulating here in the Treasure Valley. It takes the flu vaccine about two weeks to become fully effective in the body, so anyone who still needs that protection should go today and get their vaccine.”
