Preventative Care and Immunizations

Preventive care covers any routine service whose goal is to prevent future illnesses, conditions, or diseases. Certain routine services include but are not limited to recommended vaccinations, screenings, and/​or check-ups. An example of preventative care would be patients over the age of 50 getting a colonoscopy to screen for any issues in their colon. Oak Street Health makes it easy to see a doctor quickly and creates a unique care plan for you.

Preventative Care Tips

If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to developing an annual preventive care plan, or what immunizations you should be receiving, here’s some tips to keep in mind.
  • Speak With Your Doctor

    As with any healthcare practice, it’s important to consult with your primary care physician and talk through a plan that would work best for you. Discuss any chronic conditions you might be worried about or discuss any concerns you might have about certain medications or vaccines. Mention your priorities as a patient and ensure that any questions are cleared up before leaving.

  • Location

    While many pharmacies offer flu vaccines, a patient can maximize their annual check-up by receiving their flu vaccine during that appointment. By getting your flu shot from your primary physician, you’re killing two birds with one stone while also getting care from a doctor you know and is aware of your healthcare wants and needs. Not to mention, Oak Street Health offers transportation for any customers in need of a ride to and from the facility.
