Flu-Shot-logoStatistics show that flu activity is high in nearly half the country — 22 states and Puerto Rico, and experts are urging people to take preventive action by getting vaccinated, regardless if they are healthy or not.

The elderly are generally those affected the most.  Flu-related hospitalizations among people 65 and older have reached 38.3 per 100,000 people, the highest rate of any age group, the CDC says. Getting vaccinated is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and spread it to others.

AFC Urgent Care North Bergen can administer the flu vaccine in our facility. We accept all walk -ins and are available 7 days a week with extended hours to better fit you and your family’s schedule. The vaccine is covered by most insurance plans. We also offer the vaccine at a low cost for those who do not have health coverage.
