I’m feeling flu-like symptoms, what should I do?

Come in and be seen, we are open 7 days per week! There are medications available to combat the flu. Unlike antibiotics, which kill existing bacteria, they prevent viruses from multiplying. To be effective, these antivirals must be taken early in the illness- ideally within first 72 hours of symptoms. Influenza can be serious, especially for seniors, children, and those with other medical problems.

According to the CDC, every year thousands of people die from influenza or complications of it, and many thousands more are hospitalized. Yubadocs can help! We can test for influenza onsite, give you the results during your visit, along with a prescription, if needed. This flu season is hitting hard, already.
