Flu Shots Enfield CTIf you’re in the Enfield, Connecticut, area and you need a flu shot, you can rely on PhysicianOne Urgent Care. We’ve been serving patients since 2008, and in addition to flu shots, we offer a number of other vaccinations that protect against diseases like diphtheria, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, pertussis (whooping cough), and tetanus.

How Do Flu Shots Work?

If you’re like many people, you’ve heard about the importance of receiving an annual flu shot but don’t know how the vaccine actually prevents you from getting sick. Flu shots essentially teach your body how to respond to the influenza virus so that your immune system can more effectively defend against it should you ever encounter it in real life.

The seasonal influenza vaccine contains weakened or inactive versions of the flu strains that are expected to be most prevalent that year. Once you’ve received the flu vaccine, your immune system starts producing antibodies in response. If you encounter the same virus again, your body will more easily recognize it and remember how to fight it off. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that individuals get a flu shot before the end of October, since the flu vaccine can take up to two weeks to become effective and flu season generally runs from November through March.

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

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!"

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."

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."
