Flu Shots & Preventative Care in Castle Rock, CO
Influenza (the Flu) is a serious illness affecting millions of Americans. Nearly 250,000 are hospitalized each year from seasonal flu epidemics. Additionally, countless hours of work, school, and vacation are lost because of untreated flu.
At AFC Urgent Care Castle Rock, we provide seasonal flu shots to help patients get vaccinated ASAP and keep the flu at bay throughout flu season!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone six months and above to get an flu shot. The seasonal flu vaccine protects against three influenza viruses (A,B,C) that create symptoms including nausea, congestion, and fever.
As the next the flu season arrives, be sure to get vaccinated at AFC Urgent Care Castle Rock. Our walk-in urgent care clinic administers flu shots seven days a week – no appointment necessary! This means that you won’t have to wait elsewhere and can receive a flu shot in just a few minutes.
Getting a seasonal flu shot prevents symptoms such as:
- Runny Nose
- Muscle Soreness
It is important to note that the benefits of getting a flu shot far outweigh the risk of flu shot side effects. The vaccine is typically covered by your insurance plan (contact your provider for details). However, AFC Urgent Care Castle Rock also provides affordable self-pay options and accepts major insurance carriers in the state of Colorado.
You can walk in to AFC Urgent Care Castle Rock any day of the week, from 8am to 8pm, for your seasonal flu vaccination, and take the steps to protect your health!
