PhysicianOne Urgent Care offers flu shots at all centers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York
Flu shots at PhysicianOne Urgent CareBROOKFIELD, CT., FEBRUARY 20, 2018 — Flu season began early in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York, and has continued strong with widespread activity in January and February. With widespread flu activity expected to continue throughout the coming weeks, what’s the good news? It is not too late to receive a flu shot.
This season, it’s reported that the influenza (flu) vaccine is 30% effective against the most active strain of the virus. However, it is still important to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, as the vaccine can help decrease the severity of symptoms and help decrease the risk of complications, which have been severe this flu season.
“It is not too late to receive the influenza vaccine. It generally takes the body two weeks to develop antibodies after receiving a flu shot, so we encourage anyone who hasn’t yet received the shot to not wait any longer,” said Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, PhysicianOne Urgent Care Co-founder and Chief Medical Officer. “We are not only seeing cases of the flu, we are seeing complications from the flu. The vaccine may help lessen those complications.”
PhysicianOne Urgent Care, an Affiliate of Yale New Haven Health has hours that extend beyond the normal primary care provider hours and has, on average, significantly shorter wait times than the emergency room, allowing patients to be cared for sooner. Walk in to any PhysicianOne Urgent Care, any day of the week, to receive your flu shot.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Patient
Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Patient
Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
