Flu Vaccinations Available at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk Facility
You don’t have to wait until you’re sick to visit an urgent care facility. In fact, at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk, we’d much rather see you when you’re well, especially as flu season approaches. To help you boost your chances of staying healthy throughout flu season and beyond, we can provide you with a preventive flu vaccine. Influenza vaccines provide your body with the antibodies it needs to stand strong against the most common flu-causing viruses, which can be highly contagious.
There are many reasons that flu vaccinations are recommended. For instance, getting the flu can lead to several days of missed work or school, and can travel quickly throughout an entire family. And, while the flu can be a minor illness for young and generally healthy adults, it can cause more serious issues for certain individuals, including:
- Children under the age of 5 (even more so for those under the age of 2)
- Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth
- Elderly individuals (65 years of age or older)
- People who have chronic medical conditions, such as asthma, heart disease, and diabetes
Even if you are not among a high-risk group, receiving a preventive flu vaccine at an urgent care facility is a simple way to gain extra peace of mind during flu season. And, when you come to the UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk facility for a flu shot, our board-certified, UHealth – the University of Miami Health System physicians can review your current health plan to ensure you’re doing everything you need to be doing to strengthen your immune system and stay healthy over the long term.
You can walk straight into our UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk facility and ask to be vaccinated – no appointment is necessary.
