Most people who get the flu will have mild illness, will not need medical care or antiviral drugs, and will recover in less than two weeks. Some people, however, are more likely to get flu complications that can result in hospitalization and sometimes death. Pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections and ear infections are examples of flu-related complications. The flu also can make chronic health problems worse. For example, people with asthma may experience asthma attacks while they have the flu, and people with chronic congestive heart failure may experience a worsening of this condition triggered by flu. List below are the groups of people who are more likely to get serious flu-related complications if they get sick with influenza.

Its back-to-school time, and vaccinations are a required part of the enrollment process. As the new school year is fast approaching that means parents will soon have to get their children registered, go back-to-school shopping and make sure their children are immunized before school starts. The minimum vaccine requirements for students in kindergarten through 12th grade are diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis, polio, measles/mumps/rubella, hepatitis B and varicella. Students in kindergarten through sixth grade must also get the hepatitis A vaccine, and students in grades seven through 12 must get a meningococcal vaccine.

The Texas Department of State Health Services says that all immunizations should be completed by the first day of school attendance. Students can be enrolled provisionally if their immunization records show they have received at least one dose of each specified age-appropriate vaccine.

According to Caller Times in Corpus Christie the first case of the Zika Virus in Nueces County has been confirmed. The woman delivered a child in May at a Corpus Christi hospital, according to the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Health District. The woman told health officials that she was diagnosed with the Zika Virus early in her pregnancy while in Mexico.  This case is considered travel related, because the symptoms started while she was in Mexico where she went to the Doctor and got diagnosed as having the virus.

You signed up your child for summer camp or sports, and now you discover that they need a physical before they can participate. Most sports leagues require children to have physicals completed before being able to play. It's not just sports many summer camps also require children to complete physical exam to ensure the safety and health of children participating in activities. Help your little camper have a happy and safe summer by scheduling a Physical Exam appointment with one of our Primary Care Physicians. 

Parents who delay scheduling these appointments until the last minute may have a hard time getting a convenient appointment time. If your child experienced a change in health status (illness, injury, medication change, etc.), regardless how minor, Physicians are required to medically clear the athlete for further sports participation. Even though Medical Arts Clinic does accept walk-ins, we highly encourage our patients to schedule an appointment. To prevent wait times, parents please make sure to have Physical Form completed and signed by Parent or Legal Guardian.
