We are neighbors who care about your health, your time, and stopping the spread of the flu. Palm Harbor Pharmacy is pleased to offer two different types of Flu tests. For fast, easy, convenient Flu testing, visit your local pharmacy in Palm Harbor.
Flu Rapid Test: Getting a flu test rules out the need for antibiotics, which won’t work for a viral infection. Patients can get an antiviral if taken within the first 48 hours.
For your local convenience, we are open from 9 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday and 9 am to 12 pm on Saturday for Flu rapid testing.
What is the Flu?
Influenza or the flu is a respiratory illness that affects your body’s airways. It can cause minor irritation or severe illness and even lead to death. Unlike the common cold, flu symptoms come on suddenly. And it is spread rapidly and easily from person to person through coughing, sneezing, and talking.
The symptoms of the flu may include the following:
- fever or chills
- sore throat
- runny or stuffy nose
- muscle or body aches
- and further complications
Additionally, sometimes children may experience vomiting and diarrhea. And, you do not have to be running a fever to have the flu, as formerly believed.
Before You Arrive
Upon arrival for Flu rapid testing, you will need a few things. Please remember to follow all instructions provided to make this a safe visit to your community Palm Harbor Pharmacy.
- First, all patients answer a few questions to ensure they qualify for Flu testing.
- Present your insurance card and proof of identity as required by all testing sites.
- Bring your form of payment.

We appreciate your neighborly adherence to the protocol set in place for our customers and staff’s safety.
