Flu Shots Available for Adults and Children in Norwich, CT

Flu Shots
Influenza, commonly referred to as the flu, is a contagious virus that affects millions of people every year and can lead to hospitalization or even death in some cases. That’s why it’s so important to get a flu shot every year to protect you from this viral infection. If you live in the Norwich, Connecticut, area, you can turn with confidence to PhysicianOne Urgent Care to receive a flu shot. We make receiving a flu shot on your own schedule as easy as possible: we’re open 365 days per year with extended evening hours and can administer the vaccine to all patients aged five and older. It’s important to keep in mind that a flu shot can take up to two weeks to be effective, so it’s a good idea to get yours before flu season actually begins.

Does Everyone Need a Flu Vaccine?

If you’ve been lucky enough to avoid the flu throughout the years, you may think that it’s not important for you to get a flu shot. However, that’s simply not the case. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone, regardless of their health, get a flu shot. But, if you belong to one of the following groups, it’s especially important that you get a flu shot because you’re at a higher risk of becoming infected by the flu:

  • Adults ages 50 and over
  • Women who are or who will become pregnant during flu season
  • Residents of nursing homes and other chronic-care facilities
  • Health care personnel
  • Caregivers of children under five or adults over the age of 50

"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."
