Who Needs a Flu Shot?

If you can read this, the odds are good that you need a flu vaccine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends annual flu shots for everyone ages six months and older, with very rare exception. This includes young adults who are otherwise healthy. It’s particularly important for high-risk groups to be vaccinated against the flu every year, including:

  • Adults ages 65 and older
  • Adults with certain chronic health conditions, including asthma, diabetes, heart disease, and kidney disease
  • Obese people with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher
  • Children between six months and two years of age
  • People who live or work in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities
  • Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth

The best time to receive a flu vaccine can vary based on your age and risk factors, but the CDC generally recommends getting vaccinated by the end of October. Still, flu season sometimes lasts through May, so flu shots are better late than never!

Up to 20% of the U.S. population is affected by the flu and its unpleasant symptoms every year. Don’t be part of this statistic! Visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care in Franklin today to receive your annual flu shot and safeguard your health this flu season.

"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."
