With the exception of some New England states where influenza remains widespread, overall cases of the flu across the country are on the decline. With a break in the weather in the Dakotas, it’s easy to wonder whether flu season is over. Not quite yet. Typically, flu season lasts at least through April, and we are continuing to see sporadic cases of Influenza B. The CDC recommends that vaccination efforts continue as long as flu viruses are spreading.
It's never too late to get a flu vaccine.
Symptoms of the flu include fever, cough, body aches and sore throat, and if caught in the first two days may qualify for anti-viral medicine. If you have questions or concerns, please call. If your doctor isn’t available, the physicians at UrgentMED are.
Influenza can be serious, even fatal. Don’t fool with the flu.
Same physicians, same staff, new location.
Emergency Rooms are busy places.
If you have a major medical emergency, the emergency room is the best place for you. However, there are many medical conditions which end up in the ER which can be taken care of more efficiently-- and more appropriately-- in an urgent care center.
UrgentMED is such a facility. Our clinic is open seven days a week, including evenings. We can suture lacerations, freeze warts, draw blood, take x-rays, splint minor fractures and sprains, perform sports physicals for athletes, DOT physicals for truck drivers, preoperative physicals for those needing surgery, as well as take care of a wide assortment of illnesses-- all without the need to schedule an appointment.
