Flu Tests & Treatment Available in Enfield, CT
If you’re experiencing symptoms of the flu—such as fever, chills, congestion, sore throat, fatigue, and muscle aches—you can turn to the team of professionals at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Enfield, Connecticut. We’re a trusted immediate care provider, and we’re pleased to offer rapid influenza tests and flu treatment for patients in this community.
What to Expect During a Rapid Flu Test
It’s important to note that not every patient requires a flu test. If we determine that a flu test is necessary to confirm your diagnosis, however, we’ll rub a cotton swab either inside your nose or along the back of your throat to obtain a mucus sample. Once we’ve done so, we’ll send the swab to our on-site laboratory to test it for the flu virus. We’re often able to provide our patients with their flu test results within just 15 to 20 minutes.
Get the Care You Need Now
If you suspect that you might have the flu, don’t wait any longer to get the treatment you need. Although not everyone requires antiviral medication like Tamiflu, in cases where it is appropriate, it’s most effective when administered within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. Even if you don’t require this type of medication, promptly seeking treatment can help you feel better faster and get back to your normal routine as quickly as possible.
Fortunately, if you’re in the Enfield area, you can get the care you deserve without having to wait for an appointment. PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers flu tests and treatment on a walk-in basis.
