Flu Shots and Treatment in Hillsdale, NJ

The flu, also known as influenza, is a highly contagious infection caused by a series of strains of the influenza virus. The virus typically reaches epidemic status during the winter months, but it can be easily prevented by getting an annual flu shot from AFC Urgent Care Hillsdale each fall.

AFC Urgent Care Hillsdale provides urgent care services to patients throughout New Jersey. AFC Hillsdale is open seven days a week for all urgent care services, and we accept many different insurance plans. Visit AFC Hillsdale throughout flu season for annual flu shots and treatment against influenza symptoms.

What are the symptoms of the flu?

Symptoms of the flu may include:

  • Fever
  • Body chills
  • Sore throat
  • Chest and nasal congestion
  • Fatigue
  • Stuffed and/or runny nose
  • Head and body aches

Patients may not experience all of these symptoms during their bout of the flu. Some patients may experience more severe symptoms than others. This can all depend on your age, current health situation, and whether you received a flu shot.

Who should get a flu shot?

The flu shot is recommended for almost all patients over six months old. Patients who have previously experienced an adverse reaction to a flu shot or have an egg allergy should consult with their physician about alternative methods of flu prevention.

Certain patients and groups may be more at risk for developing more severe symptoms or complications. These patients should get a flu shot as early in the season as possible for immunity at the flu’s peak:

  • Seniors over the age of 65
  • Healthcare and childcare providers
  • Pregnant women
  • Young children
  • Patients with weak immune systems or underlying chronic conditions

When should I get a flu shot in New Jersey?

You should get your flu shot sometime between September and mid-October to make sure you are immune for the duration of flu season, which peaks between January and March each year. The vaccine will remain effective throughout the duration of flu season, so you don’t need to worry about it losing efficacy.
