A Convenient Source of Flu Treatment in the St. Johns, MI, Area
Prevention is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from a bout with the flu. But if you or your child is already showing the telltale signs of this viral infection, you can rest easier knowing there are effective flu treatments available to help ease your symptoms and speed your recovery. And, if you’re in the St. Johns, Michigan, area, you can feel confident turning to Ouch Urgent Care for the flu testing and treatment you need.
Step One: Consult With an Expert at Ouch Urgent Care
If you suspect that you’ve contracted the flu, it’s a good idea to schedule a virtual visit with one of our compassionate and highly skilled practitioners to discuss your symptoms via your video-enabled smartphone or tablet. Some of the most common flu symptoms include:
- Fever and/or chills
- Body aches and headaches
- Throat pain and coughing
- Nasal congestion or discharge
You can schedule your virtual consultation whenever our clinic is open. Our hours are Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and you can use our convenient online scheduling system to request a time. A virtual consultation is the best way to prevent the spread of the virus to others.
However, if this isn’t an option for you, you can use our online scheduling service to request an in-office visit or drive to our walk-in clinic, where you’ll be advised of the safety protocols we have in place.
Step Two: An Accurate Diagnosis
After you’ve discussed your symptoms with one of our practitioners, you’ll receive guidance on your next step, which may be a flu test. Fortunately, Ouch Urgent Care is equipped to provide on-site flu testing. If the results indicate that you have the flu, we may prescribe medications as part of your flu treatment.
Because the flu and the new coronavirus that’s causing the COVID-19 pandemic have similar symptoms, you may be advised to receive rapid COVID-19 testing, which we administer car-side at our St. Johns urgent care clinic.
The caring team at Ouch Urgent Care wants to do everything possible to make treatment for the flu and many other nonemergency health conditions accessible to our St. Johns community. If you’re not experiencing flu symptoms and you’d like to avoid infection, you can get a flu shot at our clinic. Our rates are affordable, and we accept many insurance plans, including Medicaid.
