It is always important to access the appropriate level of care for illness or injury. With Louisiana, along with almost all other states, having an unusually high number of flu cases, knowing where to go for the right care is vitally important.
Your choices are your doctor’s office or a community clinic, an urgent care center, or a hospital emergency room. Your goal is to get well as quick as possible.
