AFC Urgent Care Vernon offers a wide variety of medical services to Vernon, CT and its surrounding communities. Our number one goal is to be reliable, affordable and convenient for our patients. As a walk-in clinic, offering a diverse range of services is key to establishing our center as the go-to medical resource within the community.
Our patients services are available 7 days a week on a walk-in basis – no appointment necessary!
Many people perceive that medical care can be received at only two locations: the ER and the primary care physician’s office. However, there are a countless number of medical conditions that are too sudden to schedule an appointment with a primary care doctor, and not severe enough to necessitate waiting hours at the ER.
This is what urgent care centers are here for, as we treat an extensive list of injuries and illnesses on a walk-in basis. While life-threatening emergencies should be treated at the ER, we excel at treating sudden medical conditions promptly. This means you won’t have to wait hours and hours at the emergency room or wait weeks before seeing your primary care physician.
We see ourselves as more than just an urgent care center, as we offer several medical services that aren’t necessarily related to injuries and illnesses. This includes administering flu shots, sports physicals, travel medicine and more – all on a walk-in basis!
Skip waiting weeks for your family doctor and instead visit our center, where we can provide every member of your family with our walk-in medical services.
The emergency room is an essential destination for all life-threatening medical conditions. However, people frequently visit the ER when it’s not necessarily essential for them. For injuries like lacerations, sprains and joint pain or illnesses like the flu, strep throat or bronchitis, just visit us at AFC Urgent Care Vernon. We’ll get you in-and-out the door much quicker than the ER and we’ll provide you with our patented, ER-quality medical care.
Since we accept most insurances, you’ll likely save money visiting our center, as your co-pay will virtually always be the same price as your primary care – not the pricey ER co-pay.
During flu season, you never know when the flu is going to impact your area. While we recommend getting your flu shot as early as October, we administer flu shots all throughout flu season, all on a walk-in basis. This means that if your workplace has more and more people calling in sick due to the flu, you can easily stop by our center on your way home from work.
Here at AFC Urgent Care Vernon, we believe participating in sports or attending camp is an essential part of every child’s development process because these programs help instill valuable life virtues such as teamwork and friendship into children. This is why we remain committed to offering sports and camp physicals 7 days a week on a walk-in basis.
If your child’s camp or sports season is starting soon, and they need their physical in order to participate, visit us any day of the week instead of booking an appointment with your child’s pediatrician. This will guarantee that your child receives their sports/camp physical in time in order to participate on day one.
At AFC Urgent Care Vernon, we have an on-site lab that allows us to perform our required lab testing duties here. This saves our patients time and money, as we won’t have to outsource these services to another lab, as this would require our patients to pay an additional lab testing fee to the third-party lab.
We offer confidential STD testing, blood testing, drug testing, urinalysis, x-ray testing and strep throat testing in our state-of-the-art medical lab. This allows us to be a valuable resource for both injury and illness treatment and diagnosis.
For more information, call us at 860-986-7600 or walk into our center any day of the week. We look forward to being your go-to medical destination!
