Seasonal Flu Shots

As the flu season approaches, you may have noticed advertisements pushing everyone to get vaccinated.
Vaccines are available, schedule an appointment online or visit one of our UrgentWay locations for flu shots.

Who should get a flu vaccine?

Everyone over the age of six months should get an annual influenza vaccination, according to the CDC. Vaccination is especially crucial for people who are at a high risk of complications from influenza, such as:

  • Pregnant Women
  • Elderly people
  • Children

The first time a flu vaccine is administered to children aged 6 months to 8 years, they may require two doses, spaced at least four weeks apart. They can then receive a single annual flu vaccine dose.

Our Experienced Health Care Professionals will discuss your health and counsel you on preventative care and healthy choices.

Still undecided to get a flu shot? Don’t worry! Just take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

When should I get vaccinated?

Because antibodies build in the body and provide protection against flu two weeks after immunization, you should get a flu vaccine before flu virus start circulating in your community. Make preparations to be vaccinated before the flu season starts in autumn. The CDC recommends getting a flu shot by the end of October. Getting vaccinated early (in July or August, for example) is not effective against flu infection later in the flu season, especially among elderly people.

We provide vaccination throughout the flu season. Children who require two vaccine shots should begin the process sooner rather than later, as two shots must be administered at least four weeks apart.

From where can I get a flu vaccine?

Many doctors’ offices, primary care and urgent care clinics, health departments, pharmacies, college health centers, and even some schools offer flu shots. Even if you don’t have a primary care physician or doctor, you can still get a flu shot from these facilities.

Important Facts & FAQs

What are the side effects of the flu vaccine?
Side effects of the vaccine do not last more than 1-2 days. They include:

  • Soreness, redness or swelling at the site of injection.
  • Low-grade fever.
  • Headache.
  • Muscle aches.
Does the flu vaccine start to work immediately?
No, it takes about 2 weeks before the vaccine produces antibodies that fight against the virus.
How long does the immunity from the vaccine last?
12 months.
What if I am allergic to eggs?
Flu vaccines are usually made in an egg-based manufacturing process. It is therefore highly important that you let your provider know if you are allergic to eggs. You might still be able to take the shot depending upon the severity of your allergic reaction.
Do I need to pay for the vaccine?
Under the affordable care act, most insurance companies are required to cover certain preventative services such as the flu shot. If you are unsure whether your insurance covers the shot, kindly contact them. At UrgentWay, we accept most insurances and also accept cash payments.
