Flu Shots Treatment & Medical Care In Downtown Los Angeles
Electrocardiogram (ECG) Test Center
We offer electrocardiogram, sometimes referred to as an ECG, testing that looks for issues with your heart’s electrical activity. A specialist studies the EKG results in effort to identify anomalies (spikes and dips) in the electronic waves – indicating the health status of your heart.
5 Benefits Urgent Care
1. Affordable Rates
Compared to hospital emergency room pricing, urgent care facilities have much more favorable pricing.
2. Follow Up Care
Unlike hospitals, Downtown Los Angeles Urgent Care provides follow ups with all patients.
3. In-House Medication
At our DTLA urgent care facility we offer in-house medication with no waiting to get your prescriptions filled immediately – before you leave.
4. Care Providers
Unlike at hospitals, where care givers range from doctors to nurses to interns, Downtown Urgent Care medical providers are doctors.
5. Short Wait Times
Our L.A. urgent care location is walk-in (within 30 minutes of closing), meaning you have to wait minutes to see a doctor as opposed to hours at a hospital.
6 Facts About Flu Shots
- People over 65 years old made up between 80 and 90 percent of all the influenza deaths between 1976 and 2007.
- Roughly two weeks after receiving a flu vaccination, the body begins producing antibodies that service to protect your body from contracting a specific string of the influenza virus.
- Most often the flu vaccination is administered through an injection; however, sometimes it is given to patients via nasal spray.
- The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) suggest that everyone who is six months of age and older should be vaccinated for the flu.
- The best time of year to get a flu shot is immediately after the vaccine is available.
- You can visit a doctor’s office to receive the flu vaccine; however, you have to make an appointment unlike at an urgent care facility.
