Our student patients are able to take advantage of the many benefits DOCS offers, including our walk-in welcome policy, our extended after hours and our weekend hours as well.
We also administer flu shots to all our student patients. These flu shots help your body to develop antibodies needed to fight off flu related viruses. Influenza a (H1N1) virus, Influenza A (H3H2) virus, and Influenza B virus are the some of the more common strains of the virus flu shots can ward off.
The team here at DOCS recommends that individuals over the age of six have flu shots. Individuals suffering with chronic illnesses, however, may be at a higher risk for complications from the vaccinations.
