With Father’s Day right around the corner, AFC Urgent Care Shelton is encouraging fathers to “Man Up” and take charge of their health by making lifestyle changes and visiting our urgent care center for preventative services.

Regular Wellness Exams

As you age, regular wellness physicals are critical to determine underlying medical conditions that can be treated with early detection.  At AFC Urgent Care Shelton, we provide physicals such as DOT, pre-employment, and sports to ensure that you’re in good health and can handle any given task or participate in an activity.

Routine Vaccinations

Along with having a regular wellness exam performed, you should also stay up to date with your vaccinations, as they are a part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to prevent life-altering diseases.  At AFC Urgent Care Shelton, we offer vaccinations for influenza, measles, hepatitis A and B, whooping cough, and more on a walk-in basis, which means you’ll never have to book an appointment to be seen by a physician.  

Diet and Exercise

Including a proper diet and exercise regime into your lifestyle can refine your overall health and reduce your chances of being diagnosed with chronic health conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and more.  Invest in your body by becoming more mindful while grocery shopping and dining out, as well as consider signing up for a membership at your local gym or participate in exercise classes.

Listen to Your Body

You may avoid seeking medical attention out of pride, but if you’re not feeling like your normal self, you may want to reconsider.  At AFC Urgent Care Shelton, our staff of well-seasoned medical professionals have experience with treating a range of non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses to get you on the road to a speedy recovery.  When you can’t book an appointment with an out-of-reach primary care physician, or you don’t want to be hit with an expensive ER bill, visit our urgent care center.


Dads, keep your health in check and visit AFC Urgent Care Shelton for preventative services any day during the week.  For more information about the services we provide, please call to speak with one of our medical professionals at 203-567-4171.
