Our Healthcare Services for Students
At DOCS Urgent Care of Bridgeport, our dedicated team of professionals strives to meet all of your student health care needs regular routine or urgent, and to provide you with the best all round care and treatments you need year-round.
Acute Illness or Injuries
Our highly reputable clinic offers walk-in services, extended week day hours and weekend hours as well. Here at Docs Urgent Care we have come to be recognized as your reliable source to treat any unexpected injuries or acute illnesses when other student health centers are not available.
In addition to our wide range of services we offer here at DOCS Urgent Care we are on hand to provide flu shots to patients in our efforts to avoid the spread of influenza, a highly contagious viral infection. When you elect to have a flu shot, your body will, over a period of two weeks, develop necessary antibodies needed to fight off the flu infection should you come in contact with it. Seasonal vaccinations we administer will generally protect against common strains such as Influenza a (H1N1) virus, Influenza A (H3H2) virus, and Influenza B virus.
We highly recommend students and all of our patients over the age of 6, receive the seasonal vaccinations. Some individuals, however, who suffer with chronic illnesses may be at a higher risk of complications from the vaccinations.
For those traveling to international destinations, the team here at DOCS is equipped to administer disease-preventing travel immunizations. We help to ensure that harmful bacteria and viruses do not minimize or spoil your travel experiences whether here in the country or abroad.
