Affordable Flu Shots in Howard County
The severity of influenza or simply the flu is often downplayed because it is typically associated with the innocuous common cold. This perceived similarity derives from how both illnesses attack the body’s respiratory tract. Yet unlike the common cold, the flu causes far more debilitating symptoms. While certain flu viruses only yield mild to moderate suffering, more severe strands can require hospitalization, and can potentially lead to death if left untreated.
It is incredibly important for people to receive a flu shot every year. Once you have received one, your body will then quickly build up the immunity to defend itself. At FirstCall Urgent Care our trained staff of medical professionals administer flu shots before the start of flu season each year in an effort to make Howard County as flu-free as possible. We accept the majority of health insurances and get patients in-and-out the door quicker than primary care offices. Our team can get you ready for flu season as fast as possible!
With the infection rate peaking between January and March, it’s smart to get a flu shot as early as you can. Our physicians recommend receiving your shot by October or November because the shot takes some time before it’s in full effect. If you get your shot early, you’ll be ready well in advance and have the peace-of-mind necessary to resume your day-to-day activities.
Visit us anytime during business hours and we’ll make sure to administer your flu shot. For more information, call our facility conveniently located in Laurel, MD at 410.730.3399.
