The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone receive a flu shot each year. Millions of people in the United States contract the flu as it spreads with extreme ease from person-to-person. Despite how prevalent the flu is, the illness is still incredibly dangerous as thousands of people die from the flu in the United States every year.

Most flu-related deaths are in cases in which the individual had a compromised immune system, primarily from elderly people or children. Because of how dangerous the flu can be, it’s essential to receive a flu shot early in flu season. Flu season begins every year around October and can end as late as May.

Here at AFC Urgent Care Vernon, we administer flu shots seven days a week on a walk-in basis. Feel free to stop by anytime during our normal business hours, as we prioritize accessibility and convenience for our patients.
