Common colds and influenza infect millions of patients every year. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control calculated that nearly 32,000,000 to 42,000,000 patients during the 2019-2020 flu season will get infected. Even more adults will get a common cold as the average U.S gets between 2-3 colds a year.
The good news for patients though is that AFC Urgent Care Arlington is here to provide comprehensive cold and flu treatment for patients of all ages! Our provider team is highly experienced in providing seasonal illness care, illness symptom relief, and illness diagnosis via lab testing.
During a high spike of flu cases, it helps to visit a local urgent care center and walk-in clinic in order to get the treatment you need. Sometimes, specific illnesses and symptoms can last for longer than expected. Extended symptoms may require expert care to help provide antibiotics, medications, and other treatment options not available over the counter.
Thankfully, getting common cold treatment and flu treatment is simple at AFC Urgent Care Arlington: visit us at our walk-in clinic to get care whenever you need it or call us directly at 781-648-4572 to schedule a visit in advance.
Common cold and flu symptoms are highly similar, but flu symptoms tend to require more rest and treatment than colds. Even though common colds don’t have an immediate vaccine flu symptoms are much more potent than cold symptoms.
If you want to prevent a case of the flu make sure you get a seasonal flu shot in order to do so. A flu shot is the most effective way to prevent a flu infection so make sure you get one to avoid symptoms altogether.

Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
