Offering Flu Shots & Other Vaccines for Stratford, CT, Residents & Visitors

Flu Shots Stratford CTPhysicianOne Urgent Care proudly offers flu shots and various other vaccinations — including those for diphtheria, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, pertussis (whooping cough), and tetanus — at our location in Stratford, Connecticut. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that all healthy individuals receive an annual flu shot, and it’s especially important to do so if you’re over 65, pregnant, have a weakened immune system, or have a chronic health condition like asthma, COPD, or heart disease.

Why Is It So Important to Get a Flu Shot?

Many people underestimate just how serious the flu can be. In some cases, an influenza infection can lead to serious complications that require hospitalization. Even if your infection isn’t that severe, you can still expect to miss a few days from work or school while you’re recovering, which isn’t feasible for many people. The flu can also cause a wide array of complications — such as bronchitis, dehydration, ear infections, pneumonia, and sinus infections — and the CDC estimates that the prescriptions needed to treat these conditions can cost anywhere from $50 to $100. And, if you have to visit an emergency room for flu complications, it could cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
Getting an influenza vaccine can help you avoid all of this. Plus, even if you do happen to get the flu after being vaccinated (this can happen if you become infected before the flu vaccine takes effect, or if you contract a less-common flu strain), your symptoms will be less severe.

Vaccines Available on a Walk-In Basis

At PhysicianOne Urgent Care, we strive to make life as easy as possible for our patients. That’s why we don’t require an appointment for flu shots or any of our other vaccinations. Simply walk in whenever it’s most convenient for you — our Stratford location is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on weekends and holidays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We generally have most vaccines in stock, but feel free to call ahead of time to make sure we have what you need.

"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."
