Flu Shots Available at Our West Hartford, CT, Urgent Care Center

Flu Shots West Hartford CTIf you’re looking to avoid the flu, one of the best things you can do is get a flu shot. Fortunately, individuals in the West Hartford, Connecticut, area can rely on PhysicianOne Urgent Care for the influenza vaccine. We proudly offer flu shots and a number of other vaccinations—including diphtheria, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, pertussis (whooping cough), and tetanus vaccines—on a walk-in basis.

How the Flu Vaccine Works

How exactly does the influenza vaccine prevent you from getting the flu? It all comes down to how your immune system reacts to being exposed to the influenza virus. Flu shots contain inactive or weakened forms of the virus. Once you receive the vaccine, your immune system will start creating antibodies that will help destroy the virus if you’re ever exposed to it again in the future. Because the seasonal flu vaccine only contains the flu strains that are expected to be especially common that year, it’s important to get a flu shot on an annual basis so that you’re fully protected.

Open 365 Days Per Year

When you turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for a flu shot or any of the other vaccines we offer, you don’t need to worry about fitting an appointment into your busy schedule. That’s because our West Hartford urgent care center, located at 21 North Main Street, is open every day of the year with extended hours.

"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."
