Coming down with the flu in West Chester is no fun. Instead of shuffling around hoping to get better, come to AFC Urgent Care West Chester today for immediate treatment. No appointment is needed to see one of our doctors to be treated for the flu, also known as influenza. Delaying treatment only allows the flu to take a firmer hold on you and you also risk infecting your family members an co-workers. Protect everyone’s health with a visit to our walk-in urgent care center, no appointment needed.

To determine the cause of your illness, you’ll be tested using our state of the art lab. This powerful diagnostic tool will help us determine if you have the flu or something else like strep throat or allergies. Determining an accurate cause of your illness helps our doctors correctly diagnose and ultimately treat you. Prescribing the right medication is critical as some medicines are entirely ineffective depending on what you are sick with.

Common flu symptoms include:

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

As you can see, some of these symptoms could be mistaken for other ailments. This is why testing is vital and why you should visit our walk-in urgent care center if you’ve been sick for several days with no improvement. There are even different types of flu out there that could require a different treatment strategy. No appointment is needed, and you can get tested for the flu any day of the week.

The best way to avoid the flu in West Chester is to get a flu shot every year! We get updated vaccines and have flu shots available today. Most insurances will cover the full cost of a flu shot, so there is no excuse to get one every year unless your doctor advises against it.

While the flu season is impossible to predict year to year, it generally runs from October through May. However, don’t let warm weather fool you! You could still get influenza during the summer months, so don’t automatically assume you don’t have it while getting a suntan.

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • If I test positive for the flu, can I get antibiotics?

    A virus causes the flu, and antibiotics will not be effective in its treatment. Our doctors and providers prescribe antibiotics when medically appropriate. We do not prescribe antibiotics unless our doctors believe a bacterial infection is causing symptoms.

  • If I got a flu shot last year, do I need a flu shot this year?

    The virus that causes the flu mutates every year, and last year's flu shot may not be effective for this year's flu season. The best way to reduce your risk from seasonal flu and its potentially serious complications is to get vaccinated every year. The CDC website says “The best way to reduce your risk from seasonal flu and its potentially serious complications is to get vaccinated every year.”
