DANVILLE, Pa. – With respiratory virus season upon us, Geisinger is making it easier for you to get care and treatment by opening dedicated cold and flu centers, including in Jersey Shore and Mount Pocono. The clinics offer by-appointment care for cold, flu and respiratory virus symptoms, like a cough, fever, runny nose or sore throat. 

Located at Geisinger Jersey Shore, 116 Kerr Ave., Jersey Shore, and Geisinger Mount Pocono, 126 Market Way, Mount Pocono, the clinics are equipped with rapid respiratory panel testing capabilities. This includes testing for influenza strains A and B; respiratory syncytial virus (RSV); streptococcus (strep); and COVID-19. While testing for COVID-19 is part of the respiratory panel, these locations are not COVID-19 testing centers.

“This cold and flu season comes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and the viruses have similar symptoms,” said Richard Martin, M.D., primary care physician at Geisinger. “By opening these dedicated cold and flu centers, we’re helping people get the care they need in the most efficient way.”

The clinics can treat anyone over the age of 1, and same-day and next-day appointments are available. For an appointment at Jersey Shore, call 800-230-4565. For an appointment at Mount Pocono call 570-839-3633. Your primary care physician can also refer you to one of the clinics.

“While we’re adding these cold and flu centers as an additional level of care in our communities, it’s still crucial for you to get your annual flu shot,” Martin said. “Getting your flu shot this year is critical in helping to keep flu-related hospitalizations to a minimum so we don’t overwhelm the health care system with cases of the flu and COVID-19 viruses.”
