City, County and State Work Together to Prevent Spread of Zika Virus

South Florida's rainy season is nearly upon us and that means mosquitoes, lots of mosquitoes, which is why local government and health officials met with Governor Rick Scott Monday to discuss the prevention of the spread of the Zika virus.

"The positive news," said Governor Rick Scott, "We don't have a zone right now and hopefully we don't have a zone all this year or ever again but we have to be prepared."

South Florida was ground zero for Zika in this country last summer and fall with Zika cases reported in sections of Wynwood and Miami Beach.

Gov. Scott met with community leaders Monday including Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez and City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado in a Zika roundtable to discuss what steps have been and will be taken in the fight against Zika as the rainy season approaches.

MHS To Open Urgent Care Center in West Broward 

Memorial Healthcare System will open an urgent care center in late 2017 at Sheridan Street and 166th Avenue in West Pembroke Pines. Adults and children will be able to receive treatment for minor illnesses and injuries.

Staffed by expert physicians, the center will offer online check-in and accept walk-ins. Services will include digital X-rays, EKGs, laboratory tests, vaccinations, physical exams and Workers' Compensation injury exams.

Located at 16620 Sheridan Street, the center will be open seven days a week from 9 am to 9 pm, Monday-Friday, and 9 am to 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday.
