(CMR) The Health Services Authority (HSA) is expanding the operating hours of its dedicated Flu Clinic to increase accessibility for those who have flu-like symptoms so that they can receive convenient and timely evaluation and treatment. The Clinic will now operate on Saturday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm in addition to its regular weekday hours from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm.
The clinic’s expansion to the weekend is among the many enhanced infection control strategies being implemented by the HSA to provide care for persons with flu-like symptoms in a specialized environment from the general patient population and potentially reduce opportunities for influenza/COVID transmission.
The HSA continues to encourage persons with flu symptoms to first contact the 24-hour Flu Hotline at 1-800-534-8600, 345-947-3077, or [email protected] to speak to a health professional about their symptoms before visiting the clinic.
Flu symptoms may include Fever, Sore throat, Cough, Runny nose, Muscle or body aches, and Chills.
Persons are asked to call the Flu Hotline or 911 if they experience worsening symptoms such as sudden dizziness and confusion; severe or persistent vomiting; pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen; or difficulty breathing
Persons can access the Flu Clinic by parking in the Seventh Day Adventist Church Parking Lot with easy access to the clinic left of the Accident & Emergency (A&E) entrance. Signage on campus will direct patients to the clinic.
All persons are required to wear a facemask at all HSA locations.
