Flu season is here, and especially in a post-COVID-19 world, getting your flu vaccination as early as possible is critical to stay healthy and prevent getting sick. The influenza virus is highly contagious and spreads quickly throughout communities, within schools, daycares, and nursing facilities.
The flu shot is available for patients over six months old and is recommended for almost all patients of any age. AFC Urgent Care Paramus offers flu shots to patients on a walk-in basis, seven days a week. Visit AFC Paramus to receive a flu shot in time for flu season.
The flu shot is recommended for almost all patients over the age of six months old. Patients who have egg allergies or have previously had a severe reaction to the flu shot should consult with their physician prior to getting this year’s vaccination.
Patients who are at high risk for complications from the virus should get a flu shot as early in the season as possible, ideally before Halloween. High-risk populations include:
The influenza virus can quickly mutate and evolve, which is why getting the vaccination each fall is critical for immunity. Getting your flu shot can narrow down potential diagnoses if you fall ill. It’s also recommended to get your COVID-19 vaccine as well. This will protect you from the same type of symptoms as the flu and can prevent serious hospitalizations.
Because the vaccination takes up to two weeks to take effect, it is recommended to get your flu shot before the end of October, before it gets too cold, and the flu begins spreading through your community. AFC Urgent Care Paramus will be able to administer flu shots throughout the winter.
Patients who are looking for ways to remain healthy throughout the winter and into spring, visit AFC Urgent Care Paramus for your walk-in flu shot today! Our center is open seven days a week and the flu shot is covered under most major insurance plans. For more information or with any questions, please call (201) 262-2010.
Most people get over the flu within a couple weeks of experiencing symptoms like headaches, body aches, sore throat, and runny nose. However, complications can occur: inflammation of the heart and brain, organ failure, and inflammatory response being just a few.
People over 65, people with chronic conditions like asthma, pregnant women, and young children are all at risk of developing complications.
Just a few seconds! Most people find it’s over before they know it.
