Seasonal Flu Shots in Shelton, CT

During the time between October through May, it’s not uncommon to see many of your peers coughing and sneezing, and calling out of work due to influenza.

Influenza, otherwise known as the flu, is a common viral infection that leaves many with symptoms such as:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue

With new strands of the virus happening every year, it’s important to get your flu shot every year.  AFC Urgent Care Shelton provides on-site, walk-in flu shots every day during flu season.  We also provide on-site lab testing to detect your flu symptoms and provide you with accurate results and treatment.

Do I need the updated flu shot? How soon can I get the latest flu vaccine?

Every patient that wants to protect against the influenza vaccine needs an updated flu shot in order to avoid the symptoms and complications of influenza. Each year, the flu strain adapts and changes, which means that patients will need another flu shot to protect themselves.

Urgent care centers, walk-in clinics, and similar medical facilities stock the latest flu vaccination right before the season starts. Simply visit a nearby location such as AFC Urgent Care Shelton and you’ll be able to get your updated shot right away, and ultimately stay flu-free this year!

We recommend everyone, especially children over six months, seniors, and pregnant women to receive their flu shot to prevent the spread of the virus. Most insurances cover the flu shot, and we also offer an affordable self-pay option for those without.
