Just in time for cold and flu season, the Health and Wellness Clinic at St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care is accepting both Medicare and Medicaid. The nurse-managed clinic which opened in April provides services to the public for minor illnesses and injuries and offers a variety of health screenings.
Located at St. Ann Center, 2801 East Morgan Avenue, the clinic is currently offering flu shots for people ages 4 years and up and cholesterol screenings for $20 each. Staffed by nurse-practitioner Kathy Schumacher, the clinic is open on a walk-in or appointment basis, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Some people, including senior citizens, young children and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications,” Schumacher says. “The number one way to prevent the flu and keep it from spreading is by getting a flu shot each year.”
St. Ann Center’s clinic can assess and treat conditions including influenza, cough and bronchitis, sinus infection, seasonal allergies, sore throat and strep, minor rashes, ear infection, ringworm, shingles, bladder infection, poison ivy/oak, pink eye, insect stings and minor lower back pain.
The clinic also provides screenings for pregnancy, diabetes and A1C. Free blood pressure checks are also available.
The clinic carries a flat fee of $35, with cash, checks or credit cards accepted.
St. Ann Center’s Medical Clinic-Stein Campus operates thanks to the generous funding of the Catholic Community Foundation, Inc.
