Quest Diagnostics - 160 Middle Rd, Sayville
Great discreet service, scheduled my visit and paid for for the test online not in Showed up at lab, checked in and was seen within minutes. Blood and urine were collected, test results came back quickly within 2 days because I did my test on a Friday. Quick, easy and cheap. Didn't have to wait for a visit to my PCP, and then get referral to lab.

Sparkling Clean

I have been to Orthofast twice in the last month. The PA/Fiore and Dr. Ahmad were excellent. They were knowledgeable, kind and thorough. The wait time was minimal. The facility is very clean. The clerical staff was friendly and efficient. We are fortunate to have an urgent care for Ortho in our area. Not only are you seen by an Ortho provider but you avoid the exposure to illnesses at a standard urgent care. My family has been to this facility many times for Urgent care, Surgery and Physical Therapy.

Last week I lacerated my right thumb to the point where it could not even be stitched there was nothing left to connect it so they use surgical foam referred me to a Orthopedic specialist. It's been almost a week and I still cannot get a specialist yet this Clinic had me come back to follow up and not only checked my wound but even rebandaged it again. Not only was their bedside manner the best I have ever in all my years experience with walk-in clinics when I called back yesterday they remembered who I was just by my injury. They even said to me if I still have a problem finding an orthopedic specialist to come back in 5 days again. Dr. Williams was an angel absolutely fantastic let me talk never rushed me once didn't try to get rid of me fast like many clinics do and they worked with me. I wish my own primary group was as good as them. I wish they could be my primary. The nurse again I can't remember her name but it sounded like Sarita it's probably wrong but if you're reading this you know Who You Are and even the wonderful lady who checked me in an answered my calls when I tried to schedule the appointment online and I was having a problem I had to call twice never once did she get upset or annoyed she was so pleasant and helpful and sweet I wish I remembered her name. I will always go to them first before my primary and if they think it's a primary doctor I need to go to or somewhere else I will do whatever they say and I don't say those things lightly because I've had my own primary group tell me I was fine when I actually had pneumonia and almost died because they didn't want to give me the time or day to let me talk and let them know I know my body. These wonderful people are working in the front lines helping us and I don't think they get recognized enough especially through this scary time. So again all of you great wonderful Souls at Urgent Care I sincerely with all my heart thank you for helping me and to continue help me. I wish I can give you a hundred Stars if they allowed it. Stay safe and see you in 5 days for another recheck on my wound. Sincerely, Diane Martin

Connecticut Chickenpox Vaccine

The varicella vaccination, sometimes known as the chickenpox vaccine, can help you avoid getting chickenpox. You can make an informed health care decision for yourself and your family by learning more about what this vaccination accomplishes and who should get it.

Chickenpox vaccination: what everyone should know

The varicella-zoster virus causes chickenpox, which is a highly contagious disease. The major symptom of chickenpox, according to the CDC, is an itchy, blister-like rash that occurs first on the chest, back, and face before spreading to the rest of the body. Fever and exhaustion are two other symptoms.

According to the CDC, two doses of the chickenpox vaccine are around 90% effective in preventing chickenpox, which means you could still develop the disease after being vaccinated. This vaccine is suggested for children, adolescents, and adults who have never had chickenpox or been immunized against it.

Who needs the chickenpox vaccine?

The chickenpox vaccination should be given in two doses to children, teens, and adults, according to the CDC.

The first dose of the chickenpox vaccine should be given to children between the ages of 12 and 15, and the second dose between the ages of four and six. The CDC notes that if the second dose is given at least three months following the first, children may take it at a younger age.

Those aged 13 and up who have never had chickenpox or received the vaccination should receive two doses separated by at least 28 days. The chickenpox vaccine is especially crucial for healthcare workers, teachers, college students, nursing home residents, and overseas travelers, according to the CDC..

Talk to your healthcare provider about whether you may need the chickenpox vaccine based on your health situation.

Who should not get the chickenpox vaccine?

According to the CDC, if you have signs of immunity to chickenpox, you don't need the vaccine. Immunity can be demonstrated by being born in the United States before 1980 and having a documented diagnosis of chickenpox, among other things.

Other people who should not get the chickenpox vaccine, according to the CDC, include:

  • Those who have had a potentially fatal adverse reaction to the chickenpox vaccination or any of its components.
  • Those who are moderately or severely unwell at the time of their chickenpox vaccination appointment.
    Women who are expecting children.

Before taking the chickenpox vaccine, certain people should see their doctors. This includes, according to the CDC:

  • Those who have an illness of the immune system, such as HIV or AIDS.
  • Those who have cancer or are being treated for cancer with radiation or medicines.
  • Those who have received a blood transfusion recently.

Two types of chickenpox vaccines

In the United States, two types of chickenpox vaccinations are now approved for usage. According to the CDC, the vaccinations' brand names are Varivax® and ProQuad®.

Varivax®

Only the chickenpox vaccine is included in Varivax®. This vaccination is only approved for adults, teenagers, and children aged 12 months and up.

ProQuad®

ProQuad® is a vaccine that combines the chickenpox vaccine with the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines. According to the CDC, this vaccination is only approved for children aged 12 months to 12 years.

Getting vaccinated after you are exposed to chickenpox

The CDC recommends getting vaccinated for chickenpox within three to five days of exposure if you have been exposed to the virus. It goes on to say that even if you've been exposed for more than five days, you should get two doses of the vaccination. At least 28 days should pass between each of these dosages.

Childcare and school chickenpox vaccine requirements

Many states have legislation requiring children to get vaccinated against chickenpox whether they attend public school, private school, or a daycare center. According to the CDC, all states give medical exemptions for the chickenpox vaccine, and some states additionally provide religious and/or philosophical exemptions.

Based on your family's religious and philosophical beliefs, as well as your children's medical history, your healthcare practitioner can talk to you in greater depth about whether or not your children should have the chickenpox vaccination.

How can parents pay for the chickenpox vaccine?

According to the CDC, most health insurance plans cover the chickenpox vaccine. The Vaccines for Children (VFC) program may be able to assist you if your health insurance plan does not cover the cost of the chickenpox vaccination for your children. To find out if you're eligible for financial aid through this program, the CDC recommends contacting VFC directly.
