Where to Get Cold and Flu Treatment Fast if You’re in the Saline, MI, Area

Young woman seated with a blanket over her head has a thermometer in her mouth and an unhappy look on her faceWhether you wake up with a stuffy nose and scratchy throat or you start feeling weak and have body aches and chills as you go about your day, the telltale signs that you have a cold or flu are never welcome. What’s more, it’s not always easy to tell the difference, and the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has heightened worries about any kind of respiratory infection you might contract.

Fortunately, if you’re in the Saline, Michigan, area, you can visit Springfield Urgent Care any day of the week to get tested for flu and/or COVID-19. We’re open for walk-in patients from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, including on weekends. We have an on-site lab that allows us to provide accurate and speedy diagnoses for influenza and COVID-19 infections. Our testing services can also detect viruses or bacteria that cause sinusitis and sore throats. Moreover, once we’ve determined whether you have a cold or flu, we can provide effective treatment to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.

What’s the Difference Between a Cold and Flu?

Colds and flu are both caused by viruses, but not the same ones. The symptoms caused by these different viral infections can be quite similar and may include a stuffy nose, sore throat, sneezing, and coughing. But cold symptoms are usually milder than those caused by an influenza infection, which is more likely to induce fever, chills, and body aches. Moreover, cold symptoms tend to come on gradually, while the influenza virus strikes hard and fast.

Because they’re caused by different viruses, colds and flu infections require different treatment plans. If you think you might have the flu, it’s important to visit us within the first couple of days of experiencing symptoms because there are flu treatment medications that are most effective at reducing symptom severity when taken in the early days of the infection.

In addition to cold and flu treatment, Springfield Urgent Care offers testing and treatment for strep throat, mononucleosis, and seasonal allergies, all of which can sometimes mimic cold and flu symptoms.

For more information about our cold and flu treatment or the many other non-emergency medical services we offer to walk-in patients at our Saline location, contact Springfield Urgent Care today.

“By far the best Urgent Care I’ve ever been too. First, the employees are amazing and full of positivity. They know what they are doing and get stuff done. You actually feel safe there. I’ve never felt safe in an urgent care before from bad experiences until I walked into this one. I’m beyond grateful. I have to mention how beautiful and CLEAN the building is. If you need an urgent care go to this one you will not be disappointed.”

“I rarely ever leave ratings of places, and don't think I've ever commented on one, if I have I don't remember doing so but this place is AMAZING!! I was in and out so fast. ALL of the staff was so nice and so efficient. The rooms are clean and the waiting room is so nice and clean and cute. They even have a coffee machine with options if hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee and even chicken broth which I thought was just so thoughtful!! I won't go anywhere else if I need an urgent care center!!”

“I don’t usually like going to any urgent care because of my bad experience BUT I love this Location. The staffs and the doctor are very nice and very friendly. One of the female nurses name Carrie. She is my favorite because she was nice and gentle when she was care for me. She also did my first Covid on my first visit there months ago. Thank You!!”
