Two urgent health clinics will open in northwest and southwest Wichita over the next month and will offer free flu shots.
MedExpress is opening urgent care centers at 1261 N. Maize Road on Wednesday and at 3006 S. Seneca on Oct. 19. The Maize location will offer free flu shots for patients ages 9 and older from Wednesday through Oct. 5.
MedExpress is a national urgent-care company based in West Virginia and Pennsylvania with clinics in 15 states. The company opened a location in Derby in July. Its website lists locations in Salina and Lawrence with an upcoming location in Topeka.
The clinics are open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with no appointments necessary. They offer X-rays, IVs, labs, minor surgery and stitches, treatment for broken bones, sprains and strains as well as sports and pre-employment physicals, routine checkups, immunizations, tobacco cessation programs and drug screenings.
MedExpress says it accepts most major insurance companies. Its website, Medexpress.com, contains a full list of health services.
The Maize Road location will host a ribbon-cutting celebration and open house Tuesday from noon to 2 p.m. The event is open to the public and includes tours of the facility.
