Flu Shots Are Always Available in Newtown, CT

Flu Shots Newtown CTIf flu season has already started, you may be wondering if flu shots are still available. At PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Newtown, Connecticut, the answer is yes. And, if you haven’t already, we encourage you to get one right away. There’s no need to wait; we make it easy. Our office is open 365 days per year during extended hours – from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays. And, we don’t require appointments for flu shots (or any of our other urgent care services). Simply stop by at your convenience, and we’ll get you vaccinated and on your way to better health as quickly as possible.
Typically, the annual influenza vaccine becomes available in early September, and flu season runs from late October through early May. To ensure optimal protection, it’s important to get vaccinated before flu season is in full swing. This will give your body enough time to respond to the flu vaccine and build up immunity to the most common influenza viruses.

It’s Never Too Late for a Flu Shot

Many experts believe the optimal time for flu shots is late September. But, if time has gotten away from you and you haven’t been vaccinated yet, there’s no need to worry – or abandon the idea entirely. Even when administered later in the season, a flu shot can still be beneficial. Outside of peak flu season, influenza viruses continue to circulate in lower concentrations throughout the year. Therefore, regardless of the timing, it’s always better to protect yourself with a flu shot than to go without. And, while flu shots are important for just about everyone, they are especially so for children and seniors, who are more susceptible to contracting the flu and experiencing complications.
So, can you still get a flu shot in November, December, January, or later? Yes, you can! Don’t wait until next year and risk your health – the team at PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Newtown is always looking out for you and your family. Stop by our office and receive your annual influenza vaccination today.

"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."
