Flu treatment

Flu treatment

Flu season begins in early fall, peaking between January and March each year. While the flu shot is the most effective way to prevent contracting the influenza virus, it can only protect against certain strains and may not be 100% effective. If you begin to exhibit flu-like symptoms, you shouldn’t wait to be checked out. Visit AFC Urgent Care Worcester for walk-in flu treatment seven days a week. 

What symptoms are associated with the influenza virus?

The flu typically develops quickly, though you may have been infected for up to five days before symptoms begin. Patients infected with the influenza virus may exhibit some or all of the following:

  • Low to high fever (fevers over 102 F should be taken to the emergency room for assessment and treatment)
  • Muscle, head and body aches
  • Full body chills
  • Sore throat
  • Chest and/or nasal congestion
  • Nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea

What treatment options are available for the flu?

By visiting AFC Urgent Care Worcester with flu-like symptoms, you will be able to receive treatment that corresponds with your symptoms and meets your needs. While over-the-counter medications and home remedies are available, knowing what your body needs can be difficult and overwhelming. Visiting AFC Urgent Care Worcester will allow you to be examined by a physician or medical provider who will be able to determine which medications and treatment options are best for you.

  • What's the difference between AFC Urgent Care and emergency room services?

    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.
