Flu Shots Available in New York City
At the MedRite Urgent Care Center, we treat injuries and illnesses that require immediate attention. Gone are the days of waiting way too long to see a doctor and paying astronomically high fees. Whether you are suffering from a strep throat, infection, sprain, fever, migraine, allergy or other malady, our highly trained and friendly staff is equipped to help you get through it all as quickly and painlessly as possible. One of the most important reasons to come to our clinic this season is for a walk-in flu shot. In just a few weeks, the flu season will be upon us, starting in October and lasting all the way through March. By getting vaccinated, you are increasing your odds in the fight against this pesky illness.
If you are a pregnant woman, young child, or senior citizen, it is especially important that you get an influenza vaccination. Also, those of you suffering from asthma, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, kidney disease, obesity, and cancer or cancer treatment should also make sure to get vaccinated because these illnesses can exacerbate flu-related complications.
If you were vaccinated last year, you may think there’s no need to get one this fall season. This is simply not true. Flu viruses are clever little things, and they know how to adapt and evolve at a rapid pace. Last year’s vaccine may not do you any good in protecting against this year’s strain of flu. You may also be thinking, “why should I bother getting the flu shot when I can still catch the illness?” Simple: by getting a flu shot, you are reducing the severity of your symptoms, should you catch influenza even after your injection. Some of the most typical flu symptoms include: fever, muscle aches, chills, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, fatigue, etc. You’d be doing yourself a favor mitigating some of these uncomfortable side-effects by getting your vaccination as soon as you can.
