Preventative Care

Premier Physician Network providers answer frequently asked questions about preventative care.

Where am I at higher risk of catching fifth disease?

Fifth disease is a fairly common childhood illness, Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians say.

You’re at higher risk of catching fifth disease if you spend a lot of time around young children or in, for example, preschool or kindergarten classrooms.

Talk to your doctor for more information about where you are at higher risk of catching fifth disease.
