Is preventive medicine primary care?
Primary care is the most fundamental kind of healthcare. It addresses health issues like common illnesses, simple injuries, chronic diseases, developmental health, and more. A major component of primary care is preventive (or preventative) medicine. This kind of medicine is necessary to prevent health conditions from occuring in the first place. Preventive medicine is fundamental healthcare, so it’s a part of primary care. At a clinic like ours, you can find primary care doctors who practice preventive medicine and can provide a number of preventive care services. Most of these services are covered by health insurance.
What’s considered preventative care?
Any service that can help to prevent health conditions could be considered preventative care. For example, physical exams are preventative care because they can screen for, catch, and help a doctor prevent many health conditions. At most clinics and here at Primary Care 360, some of the preventative care services offered are:
- Annual physical exams and other types of physicals
- Well-child visits
- Well-woman visits
- Blood pressure, heart health, diabetes, and cholesterol tests
- Counseling services like medically supervised weight loss or advice about eating more healthily
- Cancer screenings like mammograms and colonoscopies
- Symptom management for chronic conditions like diabetes
- Vaccinations like flu shots and others
- Referrals to see specialists for other preventative care services like physical therapy or mental health services
- And more
Where can you go to get a vaccine?
You can go to your local pharmacy to get a vaccine, but it’s often better to go to a primary/urgent care clinic instead. At a clinic like this, they always have common vaccines on-hand, and they can see you without the need for an appointment. This is really convenient when you need a vaccine right away, like for travel or if you’re behind in your vaccination schedule. These vaccines are quite affordable at these clinics too, and they accept most major insurances, so you can expect your vaccination to be covered. Primary Care 360 is one of these primary/urgent care clinics. We can see patients of any age.
What vaccinations do you offer?
At a clinic like ours, you’ll have access to common and commonly recommended vaccines like chickenpox, flu, polio, rotavirus, shingles, HepA, HepB, Hib, HPV, MMR, TDaP, Moderna COVID-19 and others. You’re free to ask one of our doctors if they would recommend any particular vaccines for you or anyone else in your family based on your individual medical histories or family history. Feel free to contact us here at Primary Care 360 to learn more about our clinic and vaccines with us, or just come visit us today, no appointment necessary!
