Every year, a new flu shot is introduced to combat the constantly changing virus. It’s important for everyone over six months of age to receive their flu shot each year. Flu shots are the best way to prevent serious symptoms if you catch the flu and to prevent spreading it to others.
AFC Urgent Care Short Hills provides flu shots every year to all patients. We never require appointments to receive urgent care services. Visit our walk-in clinic to receive your flu shot just in time for flu season!
The flu shot works by taking a small dose of the virus and injecting it into the body, so antibodies are created. That way, if you come into contact with the virus, your body already has the tools to fight it off. This helps to prevent severe symptoms and the spread of the virus.
Some common symptoms of the flu include:
The flu shot works preventatively to help you avoid getting sick. Some groups of people, such as the elderly, pregnant women, or those with chronic conditions, are more likely to suffer from severe symptoms. By getting a flu shot, you are preventing the spread of germs to these groups.
AFC Urgent Care Short Hills also provides flu treatment, in addition to flu shots. Sometimes, you may still get the flu even if you are vaccinated against it. When this occurs, you want high-quality care as soon as possible.
Our board-certified medical providers can help treat your symptoms and get you back to feeling your best. With our on-site lab, you will have results quickly to determine that your symptoms are the influenza virus.
AFC Urgent Care Short Hills provides urgent care services seven days a week. This means when you are sick, we’re able to provide care. Visit us for urgent care on weekends. Call our center now for more information at (973) 671-5350.
