How Vaccines Work
Your body’s immune system works to fight off illnesses. Each time you catch a specific virus, your body can learn how to produce antibodies to fight that specific virus. However, many highly contagious viruses can make someone seriously ill and can be life-threatening. Viruses like measles can even cause blindness.
Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. 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.
