Flu Shots

Protect Yourself from This Year’s Flu

Unlike most vaccines, flu shots are not a one-and-done treatment. The flu virus is constantly evolving, meaning a new vaccine is needed every year to protect from the latest strain. With up-to-date immunizations from Jupiter Medical Center Urgent Care, you will be able to give your body’s immune system the boost it needs to fight against influenza before it affects your family.

Why Immunize Against Influenza?

While it is possible for a healthy immune system to fight against influenza on its own, there is danger in leaving it to chance. The main danger of the flu is that it weakens your immune system. Deaths associated with influenza are not usually cause by the virus itself, but by the other viruses that can more easily attack the body in its weakened state.

Health conditions worsened by influenza can include:

  • Pneumonia
  • Heart disease or failure
  • Bronchitis
  • Asthma
  • Neurological conditions
  • Preservative free flu shots

Thankfully, flu vaccinations have extremely high success rates and have significantly reduced the number of serious influenza cases in the U.S. At Jupiter Medical Urgent Care Center, you do not need an appointment to get a flu shot. Visit a location near you to receive yours today.
