Surviving Flu Season with Baptist Health Care On Demand Miami Moms Blog

The stockings are hung, the tree is decorated, and the city is glowing with lights. You know what season it is…

It’s Flu Season.

You thought I was going to say Christmas, didn’t you?

Flu season is officially here and nothing can put a damper on your holiday fun like the flu. That’s why our friends at Baptist Health are spreading Christmas cheer by offering FREE flu shots for you and your family this holiday season. 

I have a young toddler and a newborn so flu shots were not only highly recommended by my doctor, but mandatory for everyone in my house by this Mama! Our entire family has had a flu shot and we feel prepared for flu season. 

Did you know that headache, body aches, cough and fever could be early signs that the virus has struck? In most cases, getting an influenza antiviral therapy (flu shot) within 48 hours can still be beneficial. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Plan to get your family flu shots at one of the 3 convenient locations where Baptist Health is offering them for FREE, yes, you heard me right – free!

Baptist Health Care ON Demand App The Doctor Will See you NOW Miami Moms Blog Flu Season
Are you worried you may already have flu-like symptoms?

Have no fear! Now there’s a simple way for you to check your symptoms with a doctor anytime without even leaving your home. Baptist Health Care On Demand allows you to see a physician from any mobile device or PC – any time, 24/7. Here are some of the benefits of using Care On Demand this flu season:

  • Research has shown that a virtual consultation (even without the swab test), can be effective in diagnosing the flu.
  • A Care On Demand consultation lets you avoid the spread of the flu as you seek diagnosis and treatment.
  • Because the diagnosis and prescribed treatment happens quickly, family members can get back to their job or school more quickly.

I used the Baptist Health Care On Demand service last month when I was struck with a bacterial sinus infection. I was able to see a doctor on my phone (from the comfort of my couch!) who quickly diagnosed me and prescribed me an antibiotic all in less than 15 minutes. I never had to leave my home. Did I mention it was at 11pm? This convenient service is outstanding for busy Moms. It is now my go-to plan when someone in our family has symptoms of the flu or sickness. 

In the spirit of giving, Baptist Health Care On Demand is offering Miami Moms Blog readers a *FREE* virtual visit with a doctor. Use the code MIAMIMOMS for a FREE first visit ($59 value!) *Offer ends January 31, 2019. Download the app and visit a doctor anytime!
