Urgent care centers treat more than 160 million patients each year, the vast majority of whom present with acute, infectious disease-related symptoms, such as cough, sore throat, and fever. The Urgent Care Association and College of Urgent Care Medicine recognize the important role our clinicians play in the responsible prescription and preservation of antibiotics while focusing on the health of patients. We are committed to ensuring urgent care medicine supports the White House National Strategy for Combatting Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria.
