On-site Testing & Screening
Blood pressure is the force exerted by circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels and constitutes one of the principal vital signs. Persistent hypertension, or hypertension, is one of the risk factors for strokes, heart attacks, heart failure, arterial aneurysms, and is the leading cause of chronic renal failure. Low blood pressure, or hypotension, may be a sign of severe disease and requires urgent medical attention.

Each year the influenza virus changes and different strains become dominant. Due to the high mutability of the virus a particular vaccine formulation usually only works for about a year. It’s good to get flu shots annually to protect against the most prevalent flu strains that year. Vaccination against influenza with a flu vaccine is strongly recommended for high-risk groups, such as children and the elderly.
The Hepatitis A vaccine protects against the virus in more than 95% of cases and provides protection from the virus for ten years. Hepatitis B vaccine prevents hepatitis B disease and its serious consequences like hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer).
Pneumonia vaccination is important for preventing pneumonia in both children and adults. Vaccinations against pneumonia in the first year of life have greatly reduced pneumonia in children. Vaccinating children against Streptococcus pneumoniae has also led to a decreased incidence of these infections in adults because many adults acquire infections from children. It is recommended for all healthy individuals older than 65 and any adults with emphysema, congestive heart failure, diabetes mellitus, cirrhosis of the liver, alcoholism, cerebrospinal fluid leaks, or those who do not have a spleen. A repeat vaccination may also be required after five or ten years.
If you’ve had chickenpox, you are at risk for shingles. 98% of adults in the United States have had chickenpox. The Virus that causes chickenpox never leaves your body.

HPV (Gardasil) is the most common sexually transmitted virus in the United States. More than half of sexually active men and women are infected with HPV at some time in their lives.
