great service

This was the best experience I have had seeing a doctor in years. I have had a primary doctor but am in search for a new one. The practitioner at this minute clinic took the time to listen and provide me with great ways to help me feel better. She really made me feel as if she cared about my wellbeing unlike the experiences I have had in the last few years while seeing my primary doctor. Thank you!!!

The practitioner who assisted me was rude and due to her behavior, made me feel uncomfortable. She spoke to me in a disrespectful manner and made my overall experience unpleasant. I felt like I was unable to ask questions or have concerns because I was worried about being belittled. I was recommended this minute clinic by family members and I was told that they had pleasant experiences but based on my time here, I would not recommend it to anyone.

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 Waynesville walk-in and book 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.

Flu Shots at MinuteClinic in Waynesville, NC

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that people six months of age or older be vaccinated against influenza annually.

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!
