PhysicianOne Urgent Care and Waltham YMCA to Offer Flu Clinic on November 8
Flu shots available at no cost* during the flu clinic at the Waltham YMCA from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
WALTHAM, Mass., November 5, 2019 (Newswire.com) - PhysicianOne Urgent Care, in partnership with the Waltham YMCA, is offering a flu clinic on Friday, November 8, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Waltham YMCA located at 725 Lexington Street, Waltham, MA, 02452.
During the flu clinic, and through November 15, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is offering no-cost* flu shots at all centers in Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts.
"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is urging patients to get vaccinated early this year. The best time to get a flu shot is before November, when flu season starts to pick up. The antibodies in the flu vaccine take approximately two weeks to be effective against the flu virus, so it is important to be vaccinated before flu season starts,” says Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, Chief Medical Officer and co-founder of PhysicianOne Urgent Care.
The flu clinic at the Waltham YMCA will offer patients the ability to quickly get the flu vaccine without having to go into a physician’s office.
"We understand that people are busy and having to schedule an appointment for a flu vaccine might otherwise deter patients from getting one,” says Dr. Kenkare. “So, we are thrilled to be working with the Waltham YMCA to help get as many people as possible vaccinated in the community.”
PhysicianOne Urgent Care has hours that extend beyond the normal primary care provider hours and has locations across Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. The company has four locations in the Greater Boston area, including Chestnut Hill, Medford, Waltham and Westwood. Walk-in or check-in online to any PhysicianOne Urgent Care location seven days per week. No appointment is necessary and most insurances are accepted.
