Can You Still Get The Flu Shot?  

You’ve found yourself in the middle of flu season, wondering if you can still get the flu shot. If you live near a UHealth Jackson urgent care center in Miami, Florida, the answer is yes! The flu season runs from October to May, but if you were too busy to get vaccinated earlier in the year – or just now decided that you’d like to get your flu shot – UHealth Jackson is here to help.

One thing that you’ll want to keep in mind is that while “flu season” only lasts for a few months, it’s still possible to get the flu at any time of the year. Healthcare professionals use the term “flu season” to indicate the months that have the highest concentration of influenza viruses in the air, but these viruses don’t just go away once spring arrives. This means that when it comes to flu shots, it’s better late than never.

At UHealth Jackson Urgent Care, we:

·         Provide flu shots on a walk in basis, with no appointment necessary

·         Have several convenient locations throughout the Miami area

·         Accept most major insurance plans

We also perform rapid, in-office testing for Influenza A and Influenza B, helping our patients who are already feeling under the weather get the answers they need. And, for those who have the flu, we can provide individualized treatment recommendations and compassionate care. To consult with one of our experienced physicians — be it for a flu shot, a flu test, or flu treatment - just stop by a UHealth Jackson urgent care center whenever it’s most convenient for you.
