Flu Shot Mission Viejo CAHave you gotten your flu shot yet? If not, don’t jeopardize your healthy any longer – and don’t wait for days for an appointment at a primary care center, either. Instead, simply visit Marque Urgent Care in Mission Viejo, California, when it’s most convenient for you. Our physician-led urgent care center offers flu shots to children and adults in a modern, comfortable setting. No appointments are necessary and we have extended hours 7 days a week to accommodate busy professionals and families in Mission Viejo.

It’s important to receive your annual flu shot, as it defends your immune system against the seasonal influenza virus, which according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, affects up to 20 percent of Americans every year. The virus can produce several uncomfortable symptoms, such as:

  • Fever
  • Muscle aches
  • Chills
  • Headaches
  • Congestion
  • Sore throat
  • General malaise

Everyone – even young, healthy adults – should consider getting a flu shot. But, there are certain groups who are at an increased risk of getting the flu and experiencing complications from the virus, and should be particularly mindful to get vaccinated. These at-risk groups include:

  • Adults over 65 years old
  • Children under 6 years old (infants under 6 weeks old should not be vaccinated)
  • Pregnant women and women who have recently given birth
  • Adults with certain chronic conditions, including asthma and heart disease

Visit Marque Urgent Care in Mission Viejo, CA, today to receive your flu shot and protect your health this flu season. If you have any questions regarding the flu or the vaccine, one of our experienced physicians will be happy to address your concerns.
