Get Your Flu Shot Today

Prepare for the upcoming flu season and get protected at AED Urgent Care. We offer flu shots throughout flu season, which typically starts around October. You can conveniently walk in and receive your flu shot without the need for an appointment. Taking steps to safeguard yourself against the flu, one of the most prevalent and dangerous health concerns in the United States, has never been simpler.

It’s crucial not to underestimate the seriousness of the flu. Some people who have never experienced it may mistake it for a common cold. However, the truth is that the flu is a severe and potentially life-threatening disease. While the public discussion about its dangers has decreased due to the widespread availability of flu shots, it remains important to take it seriously.

Receiving a flu vaccine is essential for both your personal health and the well-being of your community. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), since 2010, an estimated 140,000 to 170,000 people have been hospitalized for the flu annually. By getting a flu shot once a year before the end of October, you can significantly reduce the risk of this serious disease affecting you and your family.

Make the responsible choice and visit AED Urgent Care to receive your flu shot. Protecting yourself through vaccination is a proactive measure that contributes to a healthier community.

The Flu Resources

QUESTION: What are some potential complications that can arise due to influenza?

A: While the majority of people recover from the flu within a couple of weeks, there can be potential complications. These may include inflammation of the heart and brain, organ failure, pneumonia, worsening of existing chronic medical conditions, and an increased risk of secondary bacterial infections.

QUESTION: Who is susceptible to experiencing complications associated with the flu?

A: Certain individuals are at a higher risk of experiencing complications from the flu. This includes older adults (typically those aged 65 and older), young children, pregnant women, individuals with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease, and those with weakened immune systems. These groups are more vulnerable to severe illness and complications if they contract the flu virus.

QUESTION: How long does it take to receive a flu shot?

A: The process of receiving a flu shot typically takes only a few seconds. The administration of the vaccine is relatively quick, and many individuals find that it is over before they realize it. A trained healthcare professional will administer the flu shot using a needle, usually in the upper arm. The entire process is typically swift and efficient.


How can I obtain the latest COVID-19 vaccine?

Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine is the most effective and safest measure to prevent severe illness. Similar to other vaccines, the COVID-19 vaccine instructs your body on building its own defense against the virus responsible for this disease. Typically, the COVID-19 vaccine consists of two doses, with the second dose administered 14 to 28 days after the initial one. It takes approximately three weeks after the final dose to develop immunity. Access to COVID-19 vaccination is subject to availability and regulations set by your state. Please reach out to us for further information on obtaining a COVID-19 vaccine.
