Thousands die yearly from the flu, which could be prevented with a simple vaccination. Since the flu is a changing virus, a new vaccine is released every year. And, every year, AFC Urgent Care offers the current season’s flu vaccine. Flu shots are highly recommended for everyone over the age of 6 months. In 2013, an eggless flu shot was introduced so that those with egg allergies could receive the vaccine. The vaccine can be administered quickly via injection or via nasal spray. It is worth noting that you cannot contract the flu from the vaccine. The vaccine creates antibodies within your immune system to protect you from the flu virus.
AFC Urgent Care West Orange maintains a supply of the flu vaccine available throughout the flu season. Walk-ins are always welcome and we are conveniently open evenings and weekends to accommodate your schedule. Call us for more information at 973-669-5900 or visit us at 464 Eagle Rock Avenue, Suite C, West Orange NJ 07052 (just west of Prospect Avenue, across the street from Whole Foods).
