Need a flu test? If you experience flu symptoms like fever, chills, or body aches, it's best to book an appointment to get a flu test. You can book a Same-Day or Next-Day Illness & Injury visit with your regular ARC doctor or any other doctor via your ARC MyChart account or at any ARC After Hours Clinic. Test results are usually ready in your ARC MyChart within 24 hours.

This year it is especially important to get the flu vaccine, or if you have symptoms to get a flu test, as flu viruses and COVID-19 continue to spread simultaneously. The single best way to protect against the flu is for everyone 6 months and older to get vaccinated—every year.
