MinuteClinic is Educating Consumers About Swine Flu
Date:4/29/2009

--Flu Testing Services, Treatment and Prevention Available--

MINNEAPOLIS, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- MinuteClinic, the pioneer and largest provider of retail health care centers in the United States, is prepared to answer consumers' questions about the swine flu (H1N1) and provide rapid testing services, treatment and prevention for all types of influenza when medically appropriate. MinuteClinic is coordinating with local health departments to establish working relationships for surveillance of swine flu cases.

Located inside select CVS/pharmacy stores in 25 states, MinuteClinic health care centers are staffed by masters-prepared nurse practitioners who specialize in family health care and are trained to diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for acute family illness, including the flu and other conditions with flu-like symptoms. Seasonal influenza A is still active in most states.

In addition, MinuteClinic practitioners are updated daily on the latest World Health Organizations (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and protocols for diagnosing and treating swine flu.

Swine flu is a respiratory disease caused by type A influenza that regularly infects pigs but does not normally infect humans. The symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of seasonal influenza. The flu is differentiated from the common cold or spring allergy by a dry irritating cough without phlegm and the rapid development of fever (greater than 100 degrees F), chills and muscle aches, fatigue and headaches.

A rapid flu test to check for influenza A can be administered at MinuteClinic, but it can't diagnose the swine flu strain specifically. The test - administered as a simple nasal swab- takes five minutes and results are available immediately.

Any patient testing positive for influenza A who is suspected of having swine flu, such as those who have traveled to Mexico
