They were very friendly. I didn't have an appointment, but they squeezed me in so I wouldn't have to go else where. Didn't have to wait more than ten minutes to be taken to a room, and then didn't have to wait more than five minutes, after the nurse left, to be seen by the M.A. Quick in and out.

Incredibly conscientious and thorough.

I'm a Kaiser member, & they still got me in & tried to help me. Ultimately, they sent me to the emergency room, my sitsiation was a bit beyond urgent care's ability to help me.
The medical assistant wasn't super social or friendly. She wasn't very quick and not so great with medication names. Otherwise it was a very pleasant experience. The MA handled the test very well.
Print, curtous, efficient service. Although none of my three providers wore glove. Could be important during these times. Thanks 👍 again.

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.
