Why Do I Need a Flu Shot?

The flu vaccine protects your body from getting the flu, even if you’ve been exposed to the virus. Once you receive the shot, your immune system gets to work, producing antibodies that help to fight against infection. The flu vaccine changes from year to year because the viruses that may have been prevalent in strains of the flu last year may be different this year.
When you receive a flu shot, it can take up to two weeks for antibodies to build up in your body and fully protect you from influenza. This is why it’s so important to get your flu shot as early as possible, typically at the beginning of fall, so you are properly protected once the flu season is in full swing.

"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."
