Flu Season

Prepare For Flu Season in Downingtown, PA

AFC Urgent Care & Walk-in Clinic in Downingtown, PA is Open 7 Days a Week

If you live in the Downingtown area and have had a cough and congested nose linger for a few days, you may have the flu. If you find yourself also running a fever, you need to make a trip to AFC Urgent Care Downingtown today for immediate treatment. If you have the flu, also known as influenza, you shouldn’t wait it out. Chances are you are contagious, and you could be putting the health of your friends, family and coworkers at risk. You need a medical professional to diagnose you and prescribe the right treatment to help you feel better.

Fortunately, AFC Urgent Care Downingtown is equipped with a state-of-the-art lab that can test you for the flu. Once it is confirmed, our board-certified doctors can give you the proper medication and advice you need to start to feel better. The type of flu you have will determine the treatment, so testing is vital!

Common flu symptoms include:

  • A 100°F or higher fever or feeling feverish (not everyone with the flu has a fever)
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Headaches
  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea (most common in children)

Unfortunately, the flu, strep throat, the common cold, and even allergies share similar symptoms. If you do not feel better within the first few days of your illness and feel like it is getting worse, come in right away and get tested. No appointment is ever needed to see one of our doctors or access our on-site lab for diagnostic testing. We are here when you need us seven days a week!

Do you know the best way to avoid the flu in Downingtown, PA? No, it isn’t staying inside six months out of the year. It is getting a yearly flu shot! We get updated vaccines every year, and a flu shot is usually covered by your insurance.

The flu season in the Downingtown area generally runs from October to May. With that said, it is possible to catch the flu over the summer. Do not let a summer day at the beach make you assume it is impossible to catch the flu. It is also impossible to say how bad a flu season will be from year to year. Prepare your immune system for flu season with a flu shot.
