It’s characterized by fever, sore throat, body aches, fatigue, and coughing, and affects millions of people every year.

How Do Flu Shots Work?

Did you know that the flu vaccine changes every season? Doctors tweak the medicine so that it’s ready to protect against the influenza viruses that research has shown will be most common during that particular season. When you receive a flu shot, your body creates antibodies, which are tiny little fighters that protect you from getting the flu even if you are exposed to the virus.

Can I Get the Flu From a Flu Shot?

This is a common misconception, but you can’t actually get the flu from a flu shot. However, it does take up to two weeks for the antibodies to build up in your body, so if you’ve been exposed to influenza before receiving your flu shot, you may become ill. This is why doctors stress how important it is for people to receive their flu shots early so they are protected when 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."
