Importance of Flu & Strep Tests

Influenza (Flu) and Streptococcal Pharyngitis (Strep Throat) are both highly contagious infections that can lead to severe complications if not treated promptly. Early detection through Flu and Strep tests is crucial as it helps in starting the appropriate treatment quickly, which can significantly reduce the risk of complications and spread of the infection to others.

Flu Symptoms:

  • Fever or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough and sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches and fatigue
  • Some may experience vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children

Strep Throat Symptoms:

  • Sore throat that can start very quickly
  • Pain when swallowing
  • Fever
  • Red and swollen tonsils, sometimes with white patches or streaks of pus
  • Tiny red spots on the area at the back of the roof of the mouth
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the front of the neck

Our Flu & Strep Testing Services

Rapid Testing:

Our clinic offers rapid tests for both Flu and Strep throat. These tests provide results within minutes and are performed by swabbing the back of the throat for Strep and the nasal passage for Flu. Rapid testing can quickly confirm the presence of the virus or bacteria, allowing for immediate treatment.

Who Should Get Tested?

Testing is recommended for individuals who exhibit symptoms of Flu or Strep throat, especially those who are at high risk of complications, such as:

  • Young children
  • Elderly individuals
  • People with weakened immune systems
  • Those with chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes, or heart disease
