We do this by offering routine physical and well-checks to anyone who either needs a physical or who merely wants to obtain a gauge of where their health stands.

  • Heartburn and indigestion

Preventing illness whenever possible

Oftentimes, routine well-checks and healthy habits are not enough to prevent aggressive disease. In some cases, the only true effective preventative measure is a vaccine. Our professionals within our MinuteClinic® are certified to administer common immunizations such as MMR, Tdap, polio, meningitis, HPV and, of course, the flu.

While we encourage everyone who is able to get all the recommended vaccinations, we cannot stress enough the importance of getting the flu vaccine. If you and your loved ones are healthy and over the age of 18 months, you all should get the annual flu vaccine at the start of flu season. Though not 100 percent effective, the vaccine can help fight the virus, minimize uncomfortable symptoms such as fever, body aches and chills and prevent complications, such as pneumonia. Call us at 1-866-389-2727 to see if we still have the vaccine available.

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!
