I am so impressed and happy with the level of professionalism, expertise and kindness shared by the practitioner. She is an exceptionally attentive listener and very thorough in her exam. It is obvious that she is skilled at connecting with her patients while balancing the demands of her job. Unlike other urgent care experiences, she made me feel like I was her only patient and like she truly cared. Her knowledge and experience were evident as she conducted a thorough exam and carefully explained the diagnosis and treatment. She even went the extra mile to discuss follow-up treatment if my concern ever arose again in the future. I am very grateful for my experience at this Minute Clinic! Thank you!

You should go to an emergency room if you have more complex or critical needs that may require advanced treatments, including cases where surgery may be necessary. An example of some symptoms best evaluated at a hospital emergency room include chest pain, broken bones, or head injuries. Our La Jolla walk-in clinic is ideal for treating minor illnesses , like ear aches and ear infections, however, in the event of a severe injury, please call 911 immediately.

About the Flu (Influenza)

Influenza is an infectious respiratory disease. Generally, the flu may resolve on its own. However, if the flu goes untreated, you may be at risk for complications that can be life-threatening. Those that might be at a higher risk of severe flu complications include children under 5, adults over 65, pregnant women, and people with chronic illnesses or compromised immune systems. If you fall into any of these categories, it is essential that you take strides towards flu prevention by getting your flu shot at MinuteClinic. The flu shot works by exposing you to an inactive flu virus and the flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body after vaccination. These antibodies will help to protect you if you are exposed to the flu virus. Essentially, getting a flu shot prepares your body to fight the flu.

Why Get A Flu Shot?

Getting vaccinated helps to protect you and the people around you. Influenza sends a countless number of patients into hospitals each year – don’t be one of them. There are two types of flu shots – a seasonal vaccine for adults and children (preservative-free available, upon request) and a high dose vaccine (for ages 65+). While you can take preventative measures, getting immunized with the influenza vaccine is your best defense against the flu. Each year, new strains of the flu develop. While you may have gotten a flu shot in the past, you may not be protected from the new strands. Although flu vaccines may not be 100% effective, it is still the best defense against the virus.  Don’t fall victim to the flu this year – stop by MinuteClinic and get your flu shot today!
