Flu Shots & Other Vaccines Available for Chestnut Hill, MA, Residents & Visitors

Flu Shots Chestnut Hill MADid you know that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that healthy individuals get a flu shot each year? And, it’s even more important to receive the influenza vaccine if you are over 65, pregnant, have a weakened immune system, or have a long-term health condition like asthma, COPD, or heart disease. Fortunately, individuals in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, can turn to PhysicianOne Urgent Care for flu vaccines. We’re a trusted immediate care provider, and in addition to flu shots, we’re pleased to offer vaccinations against diphtheria, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, pertussis (whooping cough), and tetanus.

Can a Flu Shot Give You the Flu?

No, it can’t. According to the CDC, flu shots can’t give people the flu because they’re made either with inactivated flu viruses or with single genes from a flu virus, neither of which are infectious. Some people report experiencing headaches, muscle aches, and low-grade fevers after receiving the flu vaccine, but these are simply side effects — much less severe than flu symptoms — and typically go away after a day or two.

"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."
