Urgent Care Flu Shots

The flu manages to surprise millions of Americans every year. However, with CareWell Urgent Care, you can ensure you're not one of them.

As temperatures begin to drop with the onset of fall, the threat of the seasonal flu rises. Avoiding your flu shot jeopardizes your health and could mean missed days at work or school should you contract the virus.

Contact us today or simply walk in to get your flu shot at urgent care.

Here’s why you should consider a CareWell Urgent Care flu vaccine:

  • Expertise and Efficiency
    Unlike emergency rooms, which may not treat flu as a priority, or retail health clinics with long waiting times and uncertainty about the technician's experience, CareWell Urgent Care offers flu shots delivered with expertise.
  • Avoid the Wait
    Don’t risk your health waiting in long lines or for delayed appointments. Instead of waiting for the flu to strike, simply walk into any CareWell center. Our urgent care centers can help protect you for the year.

Flu Shots for Kids

Flu season brings with it the challenge of ensuring our children are protected. Although the flu shot isn't foolproof, it offers the best protection against the seasonal flu.

However, securing a flu shot for your child can often mean tough waits for anxious kids and their parents.

Here’s why you should choose CareWell for your child’s flu shot:

  • We offer a fast and easy process with child-friendly providers—no more waiting hours at a clinic. Drop by CareWell after school or practice.
  • Our seasoned clinicians understand that medical visits can be daunting for kids. They're experienced in ensuring a comfortable environment and providing care in professional rooms instead of the makeshift setups at some retail locations.

In addition to flu shots, CareWell offers a comprehensive range of urgent care services for infants, children, teenagers, and adults. This includes treatments for various illnesses, vaccinations, health screenings, and more.

We are open seven days a week, and appointments are never required. We welcome and cater to all patients.
