While the University of Georgia joins the pack of institutions warning that immunizations are dangerously low this flu season (roughly 40% of what they should be at this time of year), a new study by Amino reveals that patients in the millennial age group are the most likely to visit either an urgent care center or the emergency room when the think they have the flu. These two pieces of data, though flowing from different sources, are linked in that 20-something patients are among those least likely to get a flu shot, and among the most likely to not have a primary care provider. Urgent care operators would be wise to alert local colleges and health centers both of the availability of flu shots and of their ability to provide supportive care on a walk-in basis.
