Get Your Flu Shot Before It’s Too Late!
Code 3 ER and Urgent Care isn’t just for emergencies; we’d like to keep you from getting sick also! The flu can make you feel absolutely miserable but one flu shot can prevent you from falling ill. Code 3 ER and Urgent Care offers low-cost flu shots.
We will not be providing the flu mist spray this year as it was found to be less effective than the shot in prior years. Also, please note that the CDC recommends a concentrated version of the flu shot for seniors aged 65 and older. We do not have this concentrated flu shot available.
Influenza (the flu) is a respiratory virus that causes the sudden onset of high fevers, runny nose, and body aches. Patients who are elderly or have serious medical conditions can die from complications related to the flu. Each year, it is estimated that the flu causes more than a billion dollars of lost productivity in the United States alone. Protect yourself and your family from feeling miserable by getting a flu shot!
We are providing the inactivated influenza virus vaccine. This vaccine is very safe but it is recommended you not receive the vaccine if you have had any of the following conditions:
- Severe reactions to prior influenza vaccinations
- Allergy to eggs
- If you have ever suffered Guillian-Barre Syndrome (GBS)
- You are currently ill with an infection or aren’t feeling well
Side effects from the flu shot are uncommon but can include:
- soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given
- sore, red or itchy eyes
