If you come to the Fever & Flu Clinic:
Preliminary registration information will be collected while the patient remains in the car.

Only the patient will be allowed inside the building, unless the patient is a child between 6-18 years of age or an elderly person who needs assistance.
Please bring the following items with you:
Your photo ID, insurance card and cell phone, if you have one. The clinic visit will be billed to your health insurance. No money will be collected on-site.
Anyone with a medical emergency such as shortness of breath or respiratory distress should call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
