The staff at Sacramento Urgent Care was very knowledgeable and helpful for my needs today. Thank you so much!
Went after a hard fall on my knee. I was helped by friendly staff who answered all my questions, had xrays and an answer all within a 2 hour window. I would definitely recommend them.
Probably the friendliest most helpful staff of any urgent care I’ve been to
Wonderful very fast the Doctor was very nice as well as the staff !
I've been here twice so far and it's been great. I did wait a long time to be seen the first time but I was a walk-in and most everybody had appointments. The X-rays I had taken were really quick. The Chiropractor explains everything really good and the staff is very nice.
I came here with severe back pain was about to be sent away because its CARD OR CHECK ONLY and i only had cash. The staff went out of their way to call someone get it approved and took my cash when they weren't even supposed to. To get me change they even sent someone out and he was back before I was seen. Great, fast polite service. Would definitely go here again in any case of emergency.

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.
