NextCare Urgent Care, Tucson (22nd St) - 5594 E 22nd St
I called for the appointment and scheduled it. I did weigh almost an hour past my scheduled time to be seen we stopped being said the staff were very friendly, the doctor was very friendly with great bedside manners. Overall, it was late at night I can’t really complain I was seen, and that was the main thing.

NextCare Urgent Care, Tucson (N Oracle Rd) - 4280 N Oracle Rd, Tucson
I was a walk in & was quoted about 1.5 hrs which was more than reasonable considering the amount of people. Still ended up being seen within 30-40 mins of checking in. Staff was super friendly & efficient with my visit. X-Rays weren’t available at this location so they sent me to another & they were able to get me in very quickly. That’s staff was super friendly & efficient as well! Definitely better than other urgent cares/companies I’ve been to.

Scheduled an appointment the night before and that was a breeze. All the staff were nice annd my process was smooth until the Doctor came in to tell me my results. First she didn't knocked she just came in then she didn't seem like she wanted to be there, she was rude, blunt, and she didn't have a very welcome feel to her. My experience with her was not good but the person who took my vitals and the front desk lady were very kind and helpful.

NextCare Urgent Care, N Silverbell Rd. - 7850 N Silverbell Rd
I found NextCare online while looking for a nearby urgent care. The sign up and scheduling processes were quick and straightforward. I was able to schedule an appointment to see medical staff within 30 minutes. The online sign in also showed me how many people are currently waiting to be seen which was nice. I arrived before my appointment time. On my arrival there were 3 people in the reception area. After finishing up the sign in process with the receptionist I waited another 15 minutes prior to being seen by medical staff. The remainder of my visit went smoothly. Once inside the exam room, I was seen by a Nurse Practitioner who listened attentively, and asked probative questions, as I described my medical condition. The NP's bedside manner was pleasant. The NP gave me a thorough exam, provided me a diagnosis and treatment plan. I paid my copay on the way out and was done with my visit in under one hour. From my observations, it appeared that the facility has minimal staffing. Given the time of day, and the number of people in the reception area, I could have received similar service from my primary care physician. I will likely use this NextCare office again because of the convenient location and the level of care that I received.

Tucson Flu Shots

A flu shot (flu vaccine) is a deactivated flu virus that's used to protect against influenza, a serious disease that can send you to the hospital or, in some cases, kill you. Millions of people get the flu every year and tens of thousands of people die from it. The CDC recommends that everyone six months and older get the flu vaccine before flu season each year since your immune protection declines over time. Symptoms of the flu might include coughing, fever, muscle or body aches, sore throat, tiredness, headaches, stuffy or runny nose, chills, and possibly diarrhea and vomiting.

Some people who get the vaccine still get sick, but some studies have shown that the flu vaccine can reduce the severity of the illness in some people. The flu shot can protect women during and after pregnancy, vulnerable groups of people (like infants, the elderly, and those with chronic diseases), and prevent complications in people with chronic diseases. Anyone with severe allergies to any ingredients in the flu shot should obviously avoid it, as well as anyone who's had a severe allergic reaction to a flu shot before and anyone with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

The influenza virus immunization, commonly referred to as the flu shot, can help you avoid becoming ill with the flu. You can make the best health decisions for you and your family by learning more about the flu shot's benefits and how it works.

Flu shot: Your best bet for avoiding influenza

The flu, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is a potentially fatal illness that can lead to hospitalization and death. Millions of people in the United States contract the flu each year, and tens of thousands of people die as a result of flu-related illnesses, according to the report. The flu can cause ear infections, bacterial pneumonia, and chronic health problems such as diabetes and heart failure.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the flu vaccine has been shown to reduce the risk of flu-related illness, hospitalizations, and fatalities in children. According to the Centers for Sickness Control and Prevention, it may even reduce the severity of disease in people who suffer breakthrough infections after getting vaccinated.

When is the flu vaccine available?

The CDC recommends getting the seasonal flu vaccine in September or October, before the flu begins to spread in communities. Because the flu season normally peaks in February and lasts well into May, the CDC recommends getting a flu vaccine even if you don't get it before the end of October.

The seasonal flu vaccine usually becomes available in July or August, according to the CDC, which is when children should get it. Adults are advised not to get vaccinated at this time since the flu vaccine's effectiveness decreases over time.

Why do I need to get vaccinated every year?

According to the CDC, everyone six months and older should get a flu shot every year. Because flu viruses evolve over time, flu vaccines must be updated every year to offer protection against the most recent strain. According to the CDC, the flu vaccine's immunity weakens over time, so a yearly dose can provide the most protection.

Who should get the flu vaccine?

The CDC recommends that everyone six months of age and older get the flu vaccine every season. It does, however, mention that different vaccines may be required for different people. The nasal spray flu vaccine is not recommended for pregnant women due to an increased risk of complications, according to the CDC.

What are my flu vaccine delivery options?

There are two types of flu vaccines: injection and nasal spray. According to the CDC, most flu vaccinations are administered with a needle inserted into the arm muscle, though a jet injector may be used in people aged 18 to 64. The nasal spray immunization is only available to people aged two to 49, with the exception of pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems, according to the CDC.

Can the vaccine give me the flu or other respiratory diseases?

The flu vaccine, according to the CDC, will not give you the flu virus. However, it does warn that it may cause many of the same side effects and symptoms as the flu and other respiratory ailments, including fever, cough, headaches, muscle pains, and a runny nose.

What kind of protection does the flu vaccine offer?

The flu vaccine, according to the CDC, can cut your chances of catching the flu by 40% to 60%. It goes on to add that there are two main factors that determine whether or not the flu vaccine will protect you from becoming ill with the flu. The person's attributes, such as age and health, as well as how well the current season's immunizations "match" the flu viruses circulating in the population, are all taken into account.

Can I lower my risk of the flu without getting a flu shot?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are a number of effective ways to reduce your risk of catching the flu without getting vaccinated. Exercising frequently, eating good meals, getting plenty of quality sleep, and managing stress are some of the most effective methods to maintain a robust immune system and avoid the flu. According to the CDC, other precautions include often washing your hands, covering your mouth and nose while sneezing or coughing, and avoiding close contact with sick people.

Flu Shot FAQs

  • How can I book a flu shot in Tucson?

    Same-day and next day appointments for flu shots are bookable directly through Solv. Simply search for a Tucson-area doctor, find a provider, and book a time that aligns with your schedule stating “flu shot” as your reason for visit.

  • Where can I get a flu shot in Tucson?

    The flu vaccine should generally be available at Tucson-area urgent care centers, retail clinics, primary care doctor offices, and local pharmacies. While many times you can simply walk in to get a flu shot, it is best to book an appointment online to reduce your wait time.

  • Where can I get a flu shot after hours in Tucson?

    Outside routine work hours, most Tucson primary care doctor offices are closed, however, most of the area’s urgent care and retail clinics are open after hours and on weekends. Book an after hours appointment today.

  • Is a flu shot necessary?

    Everyone 6 months or older should get vaccinated for the flu every year. Influenza, or the flu, is a serious virus and infection that hospitalizes and kills thousands of people annually. And it is constantly changing. The flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your family from contracting the virus.

  • Do I need to get a flu shot every year?

    Flu vaccines are needed annually, primarily for two reasons. First, the flu virus is constantly evolving, meaning the virus you received a vaccine for last year is unique from the virus in the upcoming season. As such, the vaccine itself needs to be different. Second, the vaccine itself wears off and your immune system’s response to the flu virus decreases over time. Unless you receive the vaccine every year, you will lack necessary immunity.

  • When should I get a flu shot?

    Each year is a little different, but flu season generally starts as early as September. Getting a flu shot early in the season - August to October - gives your buddy the best opportunity to build up immunity to the virus as it does take roughly two weeks for the vaccine to protect you against infection. Of course, if you are unable to get the flu shot early, getting a flu shot later still helps as the virus could last through May.

  • How effective is the flu shot?

    Each year, the CDC and other organizations conduct studies to determine the effectiveness of the flu vaccine against that years flu virus. According to the CDC, recent studies show that flu vaccination reduces the risk of flu illness by between 40% and 60%. Of course, there are multiple types and strands of the flu virus including influenza B and influenza A(H1N1), as well as influenza A(H3N2). Generally speaking, flu shots tend to work better against influenza types A & B.

  • How long does a flu shot last?

    The flu vaccine lasts for one flu season as the virus constantly evolves and each year the vaccine is produced to specifically protect against the strand(s) that are prevalent in the upcoming flu season.

  • How much does a flu shot cost?

    Depending on where you get your flu vaccine, what type of vaccine you are getting, and whether or not you are insured, flu shot costs vary. Generally speaking, however, flu shots can cost between $0 and $50, sometimes more.

  • Is a flu shot covered by insurance?

    Your health insurance must cover the flu vaccine, as well as other vaccines, without a copayment or coinsurance. However, check with your insurance company to see if the vaccine must be administered at a specified location.
