What is the difference between colds and the flu? 

The common cold and the flu are two different viruses that cause similar symptoms, like sneezing, congestion, and fever. A common cold is caused by rhinovirus and does not have a preventive vaccine. However, preventing a cold is as simple as frequent hand-washing and avoiding contact with shared spaces during peak cold season. 

Conversely, the flu is caused by the influenza virus and can be vaccinated with flu shots. Luckily, AFC Urgent Care Castle Rock provides seasonal flu shots for patients of most ages (six months and older).
