Flu Shots in Lakewood, CO

Be Prepared and Protected for Flu Season

Make sure to get your annual flu shot from AFC Urgent Care Lakewood as a quick, easy way to protect yourself from this illness, which could potentially keep you laid up in bed for weeks at a time. 

Flu, short for “influenza," is a serious illness which can potentially lead to a stay in the hospital. In rare cases, it can be deadly. By getting the flu shot, you can also help prevent spreading the flu to your family, friends, coworkers and/or classmates, making immunization important not just for yourself, but for the entire community.

Should I Be Vaccinated for the Flu?

The flu is a very common illness, especially during flu season, which is typically between October and March. Because the flu is so serious, much more so than the common cold, it’s very important to receive a flu shot, especially because it’s so convenient to simply walk into AFC Urgent Care Lakewood and be on your way. Because the flu virus evolves every year, different strains are more prevalent from year to year, meaning you need a yearly vaccine to protect yourself against the flu.

Who should get the flu vaccine in Lakewood:

  • Healthy adults, especially those over the age of 65
  • Pregnant women
  • Healthcare providers
  • Anyone who has a weakened immune system
  • Caregivers of young children

It is important to note that the benefits of getting a flu shot far outweigh the risk of flu shot side effects.  However, you should not be vaccinated for flu if you have an egg allergy or if you’ve had a past adverse reaction to the flu shot.

What are the symptoms of the flu?

Typical symptoms of the flu include:

  • Coughing
  • Congestion
  • Runny Nose
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle Soreness
  • Fever
  • & More

AFC Urgent Care Lakewood accepts most major insurance carriers and many cover the vaccine (contact our office or your insurance provider for details).  We also offer affordable self-pay options.
