Preventative Care Services
Preventative care is designed to keep you healthy and prevent illnesses and infections. There are many health screenings and services that we can recommend, based on your age, gender and health status.
Here are some examples of preventative care services we offer at Instant Urgent Care:
Immunizations and vaccinations will protect you and your family from harmful viruses. When the body gets sick it produces antibodies that will adapt and kill the virus attacking your body. These antibodies will stay in your body after the virus is gone making you immune to it. Immunization is the process of giving you those antibodies without you having to get sick from the virus first, leaving you immune to specific viruses.
Influenza can be deadly to infants and senior citizens. Here at Instant Urgent Care, we offer seasonal flu shots to help you combat yourself from influenza. We also provide treatment for your flu-like symptoms.
When entering your mid 40’s, men and women should be checking in on their health to make sure no cancer is hiding. We offer cancer screenings such as:
- Pap test
- Human papillomavirus virus
Blood pressure screening
We will check for irregular blood pressure, as well as pulse rate, to ensure you are not at risk of having any heart-related complications. We will also check for cholesterol levels and other lab tests.
