STAT MED Urgent Care Offers Flu Shots in San Francisco’s East Bay
Did you know that up to 20 percent of the American population is affected by the flu every year? That’s according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which encourages everyone over the age of six months to receive a flu shot each year (with a few rare exceptions). STAT MED Urgent Care in San Francisco’s East Bay provides flu shots in a clean and comfortable environment to kids and adults on a walk-in basis every day. While drug stores and big box retailers may also offer flu shots, individuals who turn to us benefit from the expertise of our experienced medical practitioners, who can address any questions or concerns you may have about the vaccine.
Do I need a flu shot?
Most everyone – even young and otherwise healthy adults – needs a flu shot every year. No amount of vitamin C can provide the same level of protection against the seasonal influenza virus, which can cause several days or weeks of fever, coughing, congestion, muscle aches, and other unpleasant symptoms. It is particularly important to receive a flu shot if:
- You work in a health care environment
- You live or work in a long-term care facility, such as a nursing home or rehab center
- You are pregnant or have recently given birth
- You are older than 65
- You have certain chronic conditions, such as heart disease or diabetes
