Overall, nationwide cases of influenza are on the decline. North Dakota’s influenza activity has dropped two levels— from widespread to localized— on the CDC’s Flu Map over the past five weeks. However, we can’t let our guard down, yet. It’s simply too early to tell whether another outbreak will occur this season. A year ago, a nationwide epidemic of Influenza A quieted down by February, only to be followed by an Influenza B outbreak in March.
It’s never too late to get a flu vaccine.
The majority of the flu so far this year is the same pandemic H1N1 strain that struck in 2009. This one is particularly troublesome for children and young adults. Symptoms 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.

Walk-in medical care for everyone.
