Flu Tests Near You

If you, your child, or a loved one are experiencing flu symptoms, it’s important to get a flu test as soon as possible. Flu treatments are most effective if they are taken in the first 48 hours, so getting tested and starting treatment early can help you feel better faster and avoid more serious symptoms. You can get a flu test and treatment at any AdventHealth Centra Care location.

It can be difficult to tell the difference between the flu, COVID, a cold, or allergies. Centra Care has a quick influenza test, which can tell you within minutes if you have the flu or not and help you get the treatment you need to feel better faster.

Get the Flu Treatment You Need at Centra Care

There are several drugs that are used to treat the flu. Flu antivirals like Tamiflu (oseltamivir phosphate) can reduce the severity of symptoms and the duration of the illness.

Flu Symptoms in Kids

Flu symptoms can be different for children. Kids often experience nausea, vomiting, or stomach pain along with a fever, cough, and fatigue. Flu symptoms in children often come on much quicker than a cold. Symptoms to look for in your children include:

  • Belly pain, nausea or vomiting
  • Body aches
  • Dry cough
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Headaches
  • High-grade fever with chills

Why Get a Flu Shot?

Getting a flu shot is the single most important thing you can do to avoid the flu and minimize your symptoms if you happen to catch it. But it’s also an effective way to reduce the spread of the virus and help protect your loved ones, friends, coworkers and neighbors who have a higher risk of getting seriously ill.

Urgent Care with Compassion


"This was one of the best experiences at an urgent care that we have ever had. I brought my son in yesterday because he had a persistent fever. We got the flu results back, and visited with the doctor all within an hour. It was so nice to be in and out, but still treated with grace and respect by every staff member. We will definitely go back here again for all of our urgent care needs. Thank you so much!"
