Urgent and Family Care will be extending Sunday hours to 8am to 4pm effective 1 December 2017.
The Flu Shot is Here and now available at Urgent & Family Care for ages 9 years to Adult. Getting a Flu Shot is the best way to keep from getting the flu in Austin, and we are currently providing flu shots. Flu Season starts to peak in November and continues to peak through April, so you need to protect yourself and your family from the ravages of that virus as much as you can by scheduling your flu shot as soon as possible. Adults and children both die every year from the flu.
Unless you suffer from a medical condition that specifically requires you to avoid going
out in crowds, it’s likely that you are going to be at risk of contracting influenza from
other people. If you want to reduce the risk of contracting it and reduce the risk of
passing along to someone else if you have it, there are some simple steps you can take
according to the CDC.
The easiest way to deal with the flu is to avoid getting it altogether. However, even if
you do get a vaccination, there is a chance that you could become infected with the
influenza virus. The way this happens is usually that either a virus that was not included
in the vaccination manifests itself as part of the flu season or the virus drifts – meaning it
changes a bit – over the course of the flu season, making an inoculation less effective.
When the sun comes out and the Austin weather starts to heat up, what’s the one thing that
everyone likes to get out and do? Swim of course! Summer season (and even into early
fall here in Austin) is swim season and that means you and your family need to make
sure they are safe when they don their swimsuits and jump in the pool.
The summer season is the time Austinites run outdoors to have fun in the sun, and why not? With such a great spread of choices, you could do something new every day and never run out of choices. There’s swimming at Barton Springs, trips to Hamilton Pool, vacations, amusement parks, BBQs, and picnics in any of our great parks up in the Round Rock or Cedar Park area.
What is the first thing you think of when summertime comes around? Some people
would answer swimming at the pool, enjoying picnics in the park, or grilling on the back
patio with friends. There are plenty of different ways to answer the question and no
matter how you decide to spend your remaining summer days, you definitely want to
make sure you follow some safety tips.
Urgent and Family Care will be open during normal hours except for the Holiday hours listed below.
24 December (Christmas Eve) 8 am to 4 pm
25 December (Christmas Day) CLOSED
31 December (New Years Eve) 8 am to 4 pm

"Ceder Fever" is the nemesis of many people in the Austin and Round Rock areas yearly. If you're one of the tens of thousands who suffer from it, you need no education on how much suffering it causes. But can you prevent it, or is it unavoidable? It's important to keep in mind that "Cedar Fever" is a direct result of two things: 1. your exposure to the voluminous amounts of pollen that Austin and Round Rock Cedar trees push out every winter, and 2. your body's individual histamine reaction to it. That said, it's logical that the less you inhale the stuff, the less you'll suffer. Let's look at some thoughts toward lessening your suffering.
When you visit an urgent care clinic in the Austin and Round Rock area, it’s not because you picked it for a nice place to hang out with a friend on a relaxing evening. You need help. Your family needs help. The last thing you want to feel like is that you’re talking with an assistant.
