Healthcare Network Now Providing Care to Families Who Live and Work in Apex
APEX, N.C. – (September 1, 2022) – Just in time for what could turn into a rough flu season, a new state-of-the-art healthcare facility is bringing flu vaccines to the people who live and work in Apex. American Family Care (AFC), the nation’s largest provider of accessible primary care, urgent care, and occupational medicine, is now seeing patients seven days a week. AFC Apex Lake Pine is located at 910 U.S. Highway 64 in the Harris Teeter shopping center.
“AFC Apex Lake Pine is staffed with skilled medical professionals who are deeply committed to providing medical care,” explains Mustapha Chakour independent owner and operator of AFC Apex, as well as AFC Cary. “Our medical team is keeping a close eye on the upcoming flu season and we are ready to administer flu shots to our patients any day of the week.”
After two slow years of the flu, health experts say it’s coming back with a vengeance.

As recommended by officials with The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), AFC Apex Lake Pine staff urges everyone get a flu shot by the end of October.
