Flu Shots & Treatment

Annual Flu Shots in North Andover, MA

It’s imperative to get your annual flu shot before the flu season reaches its peak in January.  The best time of year to get your annual flu shot is between September and October.

The CDC strongly encourages seniors over the age of 65, children, and pregnant women receive the shot every year. The flu vaccine is entirely safe and approved by the FDA and despite the rumors, you cannot contract the flu from the vaccine.
Every year, AFC Urgent Care North Andover administers flu shots to protect patients against the new strands of influenza that occur yearly.
