Flu Fighters

Protect your family, get your flu shot today. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends getting your flu shot before the flu begins spreading in our community. After receiving your vaccination it takes about two weeks to build up antibodies that help protect you from the flu. Getting a shot after the influenza season starts is still helpful, but getting it early provides the most benefit. There will be 3 Flu Shot Clinics in the coming weeks: Saturday, 9/26  9 a.m. to 12 noon Saturday, 10/3 9 a.m. to 12 noon Saturday, 10/10 9 a.m. to 12 noon Due to COVID-19 restrictions, appointments will be needed. Walk-ins will not be accepted. The flu shot is offered at Hutchinson Health. The flu mist will not be available this year.

Urgent Care or Emergency Room??

What is the difference between our Urgent Care and Emergency Room Care? Despite having a similar name, the type of care that is provided in the Emergency Room and Urgent Care differs based on the health concern that a patient is experiencing. Urgent Care is designed to treat minor illnesses and injuries; and therefore has the equipment and resources needed to care for those types of issues. When a patient arrives at our Urgent Care with a health concern outside of this category, the patient is then transferred to the Emergency Room for appropriate care. This clear separation allows for our Urgent Care to deliver a caring, personal experience for each patient, that is safe, timely, and aligned with the patient’s medical needs upon entering our facility. We understand this can be confusing and when in the midst of an urgent or ... Continue Reading

Source: HealthPartners Just like you, new mom Alexis Thompson is raising a child during a pandemic. And while dozens of to-dos may cross her mind every day, whether to take her baby boy in for his routine immunizations during COVID-19 was a big question mark. Understandably, Alexis – who co-hosts “Jason and Alexis in the Morning” on local radio station myTalk 107.1 – was extremely anxious. She knew her son was due for his 4-month-old shots. She knew the importance of staying on track with his vaccination schedule. But she didn’t know if it was safe to go to a health care clinic right now. She made the decision to bring her son in. And when she arrived at her local HealthPartners clinic, her anxiety melted away. “I was so anxious. But once I got to the clinic, I felt a lot better,” Alexis said. “The clinicians kept everyone a safe ... Continue Reading
