Receiving a flu vaccine, or flu shot, is recommended by medical experts as one way to defend yourself against the influenza (flu) virus. MedRite Urgent Care makes it easy for Manhattan area residents and visitors to be vaccinated by offering walk-in flu shot services. We understand that many people lead busy lives and may struggle to find the time to get their flu vaccine, which is why we offer extended weekday and weekend hours, and never expect or require appointments. Our schedule is flexible so yours doesn’t have to be.
Unfortunately, misconceptions about the severity of the flu often stop people from receiving their flu vaccine, as many people believe the flu is no more serious than the common cold. However, flu symptoms can leave you feeling extremely fatigued with a high fever, bodily aches, trouble breathing, and more, depending on the individual and the strain. Plus, when left untreated, the flu can develop into more dangerous illnesses like pneumonia. Because of this, it is important for all those in the Manhattan area who can to receive a flu vaccine, however it is even more necessary among:
- The elderly
- Pregnant women
- Healthcare workers
- Those with autoimmune disorders
If you do not fit into one of the above groups but are in regular contact with someone who does, it is equally important that you receive a flu vaccine. That’s because influenza virus is extremely contagious, so it is necessary to protect others by receiving the vaccine yourself. By doing so, you will be less likely to become infected, and therefore the virus will be prevented from spreading to someone who is at greater risk of complications.
