Influenza in Virginia

Influenza has arrived to McLean somewhat late, but it is spreading rapidly. It’s not too late to protect yourself and your family. Come to McLean Immediate Care for your flu shot.

If you develop symptoms of influenza (sudden fever, cough, headache, body aches, sneezing), come in for an assessment as soon as possible. Tamiflu is only effective in the first 48hrs of the illness. It can potentially shorten your illness and reduce transmission to those around you.

If you are diagnosed with flu, we can help prevent spread to your loved ones. Household contacts of flu patients can take preventative Tamiflu to avoid catching the airborne illness. We offer telemedicine virtual visits for family members of our patients diagnosed with flu, helping them avoid further spread through the household.
