Preventive Care

Safeguarding Your Well-Being 

Your health is precious, which is why we do everything possible to protect it. Our primary care experts offer the complete range of adult preventive services, including flu shots and personalized physical exams, making it easier to stop illness before it starts.

Physical Exams

Keeping You Healthy With Preventive Exams

Annual physical exams at Aurora are more than just routine. We take time to get to know you so we can personalize the assessment based on your needs and health history. We may recommend additional services, such as health screenings, to check for signs of problems, such as heart disease. Our approach detects the earliest signs of medical problems when they’re easier to treat so you can have peace of mind about your future health.

Protecting Your Health With Vaccines

Vaccines are an important part of staying healthy at any age. Even if you received all your shots as a child, you might still be at risk for serious illnesses, such as hepatitis B. Primary care providers recommend the vaccines that best meet your needs based on your age, health history and other factors, such as working in a health care setting.

Flu Shots

Seasonal Flu Shots Made Easy

Experts recommend that all adults get a flu shot every year to protect against influenza (the flu). This highly contagious but preventable virus can leave you feeling sick for weeks. We offer easy access to flu shots in Aurora clinics and pharmacies close to home.

Health Screenings

Helping You Catch Potential Health Problems Early

Health screenings are tests that catch the earliest signs of common but serious problems, such as cancer and heart disease. Health screenings may also show whether you face a higher-than-normal risk for future problems. Our experts recommend the health screenings that are right for you based on your age, gender and health history.
