AFC Urgent Care Conshohocken is now offering seasonal flu shots. The flu vaccination is the most effective way to protect yourself against the influenza family of viruses which are in season from early fall through the end of spring. The flu virus is highly contagious and can quickly spread through people in close quarters, including in classrooms, workplaces and even in your own home. Flu shots are available to walk-in patients seven days a week.
Who should get a flu shot?
Patients over the age of six months should get a flu shot each fall. Because the virus evolves quickly, annual vaccines are recommended. Patients who are considered high-risk for complications from the virus should get the flu shot as soon as possible to give the vaccine time to work. High-risk patients may include senior citizens, pregnant women, young children and patients with other health concerns including chronic or underlying health conditions or compromised immune systems. Patients with egg allergies or who have previously reacted negatively to a flu shot should consult with their physician before getting the vaccine.
Symptoms of the flu may vary based on the severity of the case. Symptoms include:
- Fever and/or body chills
- Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
- Chest and nasal congestion
- Stuffed and/or runny nose
- Muscle aches
