When flu season starts, you want to make sure that you and your family are protected. A flu vaccination is the best way to help ensure the health of your family and save them the discomfort and agony of the flu. At Clio Urgent Care, we are proud to offer flu shots to adults, children, and seniors of all ages to help protect them from contracting the flu. We are open 7 days a week and you never need an appointment to see a doctor at our walk-in clinic, so there is no reason for you to miss out on getting a flu shot this season.
The flu is one of the most common viral infections faced by people of all ages every year. Anyone who has had the flu knows the fever, persistent cough, and body aches and pains can drain you of energy, forcing you to spend days in bed recovering. No one wants to waste time lying in bed and missing out on important commitments, so take advantage of Clio Urgent Care’s flu shot clinic this season and protect yourself, your co-workers, and your family.
Once you have the flu, there is little you can do to expedite your recovery. Antiviral medication, while helpful, can only be used within a few days of symptom onset, and while over the counter medications can address symptoms, they do nothing to shorten the length of your illness. The best way to avoid the misery of the flu is always to get a flu shot before you become sick. Flu vaccines have been used for years and are a safe and effective way to ensure your family stays healthy all year long. Especially for children and the elderly, who may experience additional complications when they have the flu, staying healthy in the first place is important.
At Clio Urgent Care, our doctors are dedicated to the health and well-being of each of our patients. We are proud to offer care without an appointment 7 days a week, including on holidays. By offering flu shots, we strive to help our patients maintain their health year-round, and for those patients who contract the flu, we can provide comprehensive treatment services to help you stay as comfortable as possible while you recover. Most importantly for patients who have the flu, it is imperative to let your body rest and drink enough water. Warm fluids like soup or tea can help soothe your throat, break up mucus congestion, and ensure you are hydrated.
