What is the Flu?

The flu is a dangerous and potentially life threatening virus. The CDC is reporting that the outbreak of flu has become an epidemic and has resulted in multiple deaths. especially vulnerable are young children and elderly people. Symptoms may not present immediately after exposure and contracting the virus. There are many strains of flu and different ones attack more aggressively on different years.

Symptoms of the Flu

Common flu symptoms include fever, muscle aches, chills, fatigue, headache, runny nose, cough and congestion. Some of these symptoms mimic the common cold so it’s important to know if you have the flu so that you can avoid exposing other people, get tested, and begin treatment as soon as possible.

Testing for the Flu

There are in-clinic flu tests that will test for the most common strains. It’s important to get tested for the flu shortly after developing symptoms since some treatments are only effective if begun in the early stages of the illness. It’s also important to know if you have the flu so that you can avoid spreading the illness to your family, friends, and co-workers.

Treating the Flu

While there is no cure for the flu, it’s important to treat symptoms to reduce their severity as well as reduce the duration of the illness. At home it’s important to get plenty of rest, and drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration and additional symptoms. Over the counter decongestants and pain relievers may help with fevers and sinus pain, but there are clinical treatments that will treat your symptoms and lessen the duration of the flu.  Visiting Urgent Care 24/7 as your symptoms develop will allow you  receive care and treatment that will shorten the duration of the flu and reduce the severity of the symptoms.

Preventing the Flu + Flu shots

It’s important to get a flu shot every year. Each year, the flu vaccine is developed based on a complex scientific formula that estimates what flu strains will hit the hardest this year. While the flu shot is not 100% effective against all strains of the flu, it can help lessen the duration and symptoms if you do contract the flu. Flu shots are especially important for children and elderly people.

Other precautions to take to avoid getting the flu?

  • Wash hands your hands regularly and thoroughly, especially after contact with others.
  • Clean grocery carts and other public items that you will handle.

Absolutely wonderful service. I’m a nurse myself, and the care I received at this facility from Tori and the PA who saw me (I can’t remember his name) was beyond excellent. It was my wedding rehearsal day, and I came in in pretty bad shape. Both providers showed so much concern and compassion, I felt immediate relief just knowing I was in good hands. Thank you for all you do! I’d recommend anyone and everyone to this facility!

I took my boyfriend here after he cut himself badly on a school project. We were greeted immediately and taken to a room where the nurse explained very clearly the price and process of the visit. It was absolutely one of the fastest visits to a doctor either one of us has ever experienced. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend this urgent care to anyone for quick and thorough care.
