What does a flu test involve?
A flu test, also known as a rapid influenza antigen test, is performed to see if you have the flu, and if so, what type (influenza A or B). It’s simple – a nasal swab is used to collect a sample from your throat or nasal passageways. The sample is then evaluated in our on-site lab. Depending on the result, one of our physicians may suggest medication, self-care measures, and other ways to help you restore your health and feel better as quickly as possible.
