Our experienced medical practitioners administer flu shots to adults and children, as well as other important immunizations, every day of the week and do not require appointments.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that up to 20 percent of the American population is affected by the flu every year. That’s a lot of people! The flu shot works by triggering the development of antibodies that protect the immune system from the influenza virus. This development usually takes about two weeks to complete, so the sooner you can be vaccinated, the better. It is still possible to become ill after being vaccinated, but your symptoms will likely be much less worse than if you had not received your flu shot.
Everyone – even young and otherwise healthy adults – is susceptible to the flu. However, certain individuals are particularly vulnerable to becoming sick and should be especially mindful to receive their annual flu shot. These individuals include:
- Adults over the age of 65
- Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth
- Children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years
- Residents of nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, and other long-term care centers
- People with asthma, chronic lung disease, and heart disease
