"Mizzou Quick Care will provide walk-in medical care to anyone in the community age one year or older with a common illness such as an ear infection, strep throat or the flu," Mitch Wasden, chief executive and operating officer of MU Health Care, said in the article.
Pre-employment, sports and day care physicals, pregnancy tests, flu shots and limited adult immunizations also will be offered. The clinics will be linked to MU Health Care providers through electronic health records, the article said.
