Where to Go for Speedy Flu Treatment in St. Clair Shores, MI
Getting your annual flu vaccination is your best weapon against becoming sick from a flu infection, but seeking speedy treatment as soon as you start having flu symptoms is your next-best defense. If medical testing confirms a flu diagnosis, you may benefit from flu treatment that can dramatically ease your symptoms and help you feel better faster than if you toughed it out on your own.

How On-Site Virus Testing Aids in Flu Treatment
The highly qualified medical practitioners at Springfield Urgent Care can tell a lot about your illness by listening as you describe your symptoms and how they began. However, many viral and bacterial infections mimic common flu symptoms, such as coughing, fever, body aches, extreme fatigue, and having a sore throat. Although the symptoms may be similar, the most effective treatment will depend on the cause of your respiratory distress.
Fortunately, Springfield Urgent Care is equipped to provide on-site testing for a wide variety of respiratory illnesses—with results typically available on the same day or within minutes. In addition to flu testing and treatment, we also have tests to detect:
- Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV)
- Strep throat
What’s more, we have in-house digital X-ray equipment that can help our medical team accurately diagnose and treat pneumonia, a complication that often arises from an influenza infection.
Contact Springfield Urgent Care today if you have questions about the flu treatment and other non-emergency medical services available at our walk-in clinic in St. Clair Shores. We also offer flu shots.
