Who Needs a Pre-Employment Physical?

Often, job seekers who are looking for roles in physically demanding roles will need a pre-employment physical. If your job description includes tasks like lifting, bending, and even extensive walking or standing, your employer may ask you to prove your physical fitness for the role.

Physical requirements vary by employer, but the physical evaluation covers abilities such as squatting and bending, along with checking your vital signs and any other notable conditions or issues. For corporate roles that are looking for a clean bill of health, the requirements may be less stringent, including only vital signs and a quick checkup.

Who Pays for the Pre-Employment Physical?

In most cases, the job applicant or employee must pay for their own physical. In some cases, companies may cover or reimburse the cost, but that practice is less common. Most of the time, employees are on their own, which is why it’s understandable that they’re looking for cheap pre-employment physicals.

Important Facts About The Flu (Influenza)

Here’s What You Need To Know About The Flu This Year

As the 2019 flu season approaches Colorado, it is helpful to educate the public on key facts about influenza, commonly called “the flu.” While Metro Urgent Care offers flu prevention, flu testing and treatment, our team believes knowledge is power. Read on to discover some important facts about the flu or “influenza,” specifically in the Denver, Colorado area.

Should I Get A Flu Shot?

What is Influenza (Flu)?

According to the CDC, the “flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The best way to prevent flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.”

Have you gotten your flu shot yet?

MUC offers $25 flu shots at our Denver walk-in medical clinics from 8am – 8pm seven days a week. Last year’s Colorado flu season was the worst in recorded history, so health officials are stressing the importance of getting vaccinated against the flu. Flu vaccines work by causing antibodies to develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. The CDC says, “these antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine.” While the flu vaccination is the best way to prevent against the flu, Colorado residents should wash hands thoroughly, avoid contagious persons, get plenty of sleep and stay hydrated.

Will The 2019 Flu Season Be Worse Than The 2018 Flu Season?

Unfortunately, it is too early in the season to make any predictions regarding the severity of the upcoming flu season. However, if the 2019 season is anything like last year’s, it could be one of the worst in history. According to the CDC, “the 2017-18 season was the first season to be classified as a high severity across all age groups.” Furthermore, the CDC website provided the following stats regarding the 2018 flu season- “During the 2017-2018 season, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia and influenza was at or above the epidemic threshold for 16 consecutive weeks.” In layman’s terms, it’s estimated that over 80,000 people died from flu-related illnesses in the United States last year, which is the highest number in 40+ years. Unfortunately, last year’s flu season was responsible for a recorded 180 pediatric deaths, the highest to date (80% of these pediatric deaths occurred in children who did not receive a flu vaccination).

Who Should Get A Flu Shot?

Most people should get a flu shot. The CDC recommends everyone six months and older get a flu vaccination, provided they are healthy during the time they receive the shot. Those younger than 6 months of age, those with potential life-threatening allergies, or those with Guillain-Barré Syndrome should not get the flu shot. If you are unsure if you should or should not get a flu shot, contact MUC and speak with one of our licensed medical professionals.

Denver Flu Shots Walk In Clinic

When Should You Get Your Flu Shot?

Health professionals recommend getting a flu shot by the end of October or early November. It takes about two weeks for the antibodies to fully take effect, so getting a flu shot early in the season is ideal.

I Rarely Get Sick, So Why Get A Flu Shot?

While it is true that healthy individuals might not get the flu in any given year or over the span of a couple years, there are plenty of good reasons to still get vaccinated. Why? Infants, those with compromised immune systems, and the elderly might catch the flu from a non-vaccinated carrier, which could result in serious illness or even death.

Can’t I Still Catch The Flu If I Get A Flu Shot?

The CDC estimates that flu vaccination reduces the risk of the virus by about 40 to 60 percent. You might still catch the flu this year, yet it could be less severe if you have gotten a flu shot, which decreases your chances of pneumonia and hospitalization. He

How Long Are You Contagious With The Flu?

Those who are sick with the flu are most contagious in the first 3-4 days after their illness begins. Adults in good health might infect others beginning 1 day before their symptoms develop and up to 7 days after becoming sick. NPR compiled a short video about how long infected persons are contagious with the flu. Watch it below:

Flu Testing And Treatment In Westminster, Colorado

Why Early Flu Testing Can Help Make Treatment More Effective

Last year’s flu season was the worst in Colorado history. Here’s why early flu testing and treatment is imperative.

It’s the beginning of the 2018-2019 flu season, and if it is anything like last year, it could be one of the worst to date. If you live or work in Westminster, Colorado, now is the time to prepare and learn how to avoid the flu or at least shorten its duration if you become ill. The Denver Post has already reported the first cases of the flu in the Greater Denver area, so it’s only a matter of time before Westminster is affected. If you end up being unlucky, and start developing flu symptoms, be sure to visit one of our Westminster urgent care locations for early flu testing and treatment options.

Last Year’s Colorado Flu Season Was The Worst In History

According to Kirk Mitchell of the Denver Post, ”the most recent flu season was the worst in Colorado history with 4,650 residents going to the hospital with the disease between fall 2017 and spring 2018, state officials announced Thursday.” Health officials in Denver are urging people to get a flu shot, to prevent the flu. The CDC held a flu vaccine campaign press conference in DC on September 27, which included a recent “estimate that more than 900,000 people were hospitalized and more than 80,000 people died from flu last season.” Those numbers are the highest to date.

Why Flu Testing Is So Important For You And Your Family

The 2018-2019 flu season could be even worse, so it’s important to get your flu shot. The ideal time to get the flu shot is October or November. Equally as important, is getting a flu test at the first sign of symptoms. Unlike the common cold, flu symptoms usually appear in 24 hours. Flu testing is much more important than most people realize, because it ensures accurate diagnosis, and allows immediate treatment. Flu treatment might include administering important fluids, providing anti-fever medication, etc. Here’s the real benefit – If administered in the beginning stages of the flu, anti-viral drugs can help shorten the duration of the flu, and even lessen symptoms. A shorter, less severe flu decreases odds of complications, such as hospitalization.
