Administering Flu Shots & Other Vaccinations in Southington, CT

A man gets a vaccine in his left arm.

Is it time for your annual flu shot? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone who is six months and older should receive an influenza vaccination every fall—preferably in September or October. In Southington, Connecticut, residents and visitors can come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for their annual flu shot. We serve patients of all ages, so we can take care of this task for your whole family, if necessary.

About the Influenza Vaccination

The flu vaccine causes antibodies to develop in the body, which help fight off infection of circulating influenza viruses. The vaccine is quadrivalent, meaning that it protects against four different flu viruses—the ones that scientists predict will be the most common strains during the upcoming flu season. A person is considered fully vaccinated against the flu two weeks after their shot.

The flu vaccine is especially important for people that:

  • Are over age 65
  • Are pregnant
  • Have a weakened immune system
  • Have a chronic condition like asthma or COPD

Other Vaccinations

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we offer a wide range of vaccinations for our patients, in addition to flu shots. We can administer:

  • Diphtheria shots
  • Hepatitis A and B shots
  • Pertussis (whooping cough) shots
  • Tetanus shots

Whether it’s time for your annual flu shot or you need another vaccination, you can come to PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Southington for immediate care. Our facility is open seven days per week with extended hours for your convenience.

"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."
