What are seasonal illnesses?
Seasonal illnesses are common viruses, infections, and other diseases that arise during specific times of the year. For example, the influenza virus is a seasonal illness that is most common during fall and winter since it impacts patients at a much greater rate within these seasons than other times.
However, seasonal illnesses are some of the most common types of diseases that patients will have to manage. Influenza, seasonal allergies, the common cold, strep throat, and other diseases are thankfully treatable at our urgent care center!
What are seasonal injuries?
