Influenza, also known as “the flu,” is a highly contagious viral infection that affects over 200,000 Americans annually. Influenza is a highly adaptive virus that grows resistant to vaccines and antibiotics over time. As a result, each year a new vaccination for the flu is released to the public to reduce the spread of the virus. It is recommended that everyone over the age of 6 months have a flu shot at least once a year – especially high risk individuals such as children under the age of 2, adults over the age of 65.
With the flu season hitting its peak between the months of October to May, AFC Urgent Care recommends that you receive this vaccine sometime during those 8 months. We make it easy for patients of all ages to walk in to our conveniently located center at 2100 88th Street, Bldg G, 1A in North Bergen, NJ and receive a flu vaccine from one of our experienced and highly qualified medical professionals – no appointment necessary. We believe in affordable health care for all so we also accept most insurances and offer deeply discounted rates to those without insurance.
