Flu Shots at AFC Urgent Care Lyndhurst

Every year a new vaccination for the flu is released to the public as the influenza virus is constantly mutating. It is recommended that everyone over the age of 6 months have a flu shot once a year. Having an annual Routine will prevent the potential of contracting the virus and leading to more serious complications. If you do contract the flu even after getting a shot, your symptoms will be less severe.
For walk-in flu vaccination, bring your entire family to AFC Urgent Care Lyndhurst. Our staff of medical professionals can provide flu shots seven days a week on a walk-in basis. We never require appointments to be seen, but you can book an appointment online to solidify your spot.
Who Should Get a Flu Shot?
We encourage almost everyone to get a flu shot each year. Flu shots are necessary each year as strains of the flu change frequently. The flu vaccination is the single most effective way to prevent flu-like symptoms throughout the year. It is recommended that everyone over the age of six months get a flu shot. However, if you’ve developed Guillain-Barre syndrome or have had an adverse reaction to the shot in the past, speak to your healthcare provider about alternate prevention methods.
We recommend everyone get vaccinated for the flu including:
Children over six months
Individuals with chronic health conditions
Individuals with weakened immune systems
How Does The Flu Shot Work?
A flu vaccination works by creating antibodies that begin to appear 1-2 weeks after the vaccination is administered. These antibodies help fight against the infection with the viruses that are associated with the vaccination. With the flu season occurring between the months of October to May, we recommend you are vaccinated sometime during those 8 months. It is best to get vaccinated each year to protect you for the duration of flu season.
