Flu shots available at no cost* during the flu clinic at the Waltham YMCA from 10am to 1pm
Waltham, MA., November 5, 2019 — PhysicianOne Urgent Care, in partnership with the Waltham YMCA, is offering a flu clinic on Friday, November 8 from 10am to 1pm at the Waltham YMCA located at 725 Lexington Street, Waltham, MA 02452.
During the flu clinic, and through November 15, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is offering no-cost* flu shots at all centers in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging patients to get vaccinated early this year. The best time to get a flu shot is before November, when flu season starts to pick up. The antibodies in the flu vaccine take approximately two weeks to be effective against the flu virus, so it is important to be vaccinated before flu season starts.” says Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of PhysicianOne Urgent Care.
The flu clinic at the Waltham YMCA will offer patients the ability to quickly get the flu vaccine without having to go into a physician’s office.
“We understand that people are busy and having to schedule an appointment for a flu vaccine might otherwise deter patients from getting one,” says Dr. Kenkare. “So, we are thrilled to be working with the Waltham YMCA to help get as many people as possible vaccinated in the community.”
PhysicianOne Urgent Care has hours that extend beyond the normal primary care provider hours, and has locations across Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. The company has four locations in the Greater Boston area, including Chestnut Hill, Medford, Waltham and Westwood. Walk in or check in online to any PhysicianOne Urgent Care location, seven days per week.
*Please visit www.p1uc.com for details. Flu Shots for ages 4 yrs+. Health insurance information and a photo ID needed at time of clinic. Please call 1.855.349.2828 with any specific questions.

"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."
