Flu season is coming up in the near future, which means that patients will need an updated flu shot as soon as they require care. The influenza virus can impact at least 40 million people in a given year, especially like last flu season where thousands of flu cases lead to hospitalizations.

The main consequences of the flu are well-known but other supplemental issues can greatly impact your quality of life.

Flu-borne illnesses can lead to symptoms including sneezing, coughing, congestion, fever, and fatigue. The severity of these illnesses can vary from patient to patient but usually require at least two weeks of rest to fight off. As more and more people miss work and school from the flu, it can lead to significant delays in productivity, quality of life, and other important responsibilities that people have in their daily lives.

In addition, the flu can cause hospitalizations and potentially death in rare cases among very vulnerable patients. That is why it is important for healthier members of the community to get vaccinated: to reduce the spread of the flu virus across your community.

Many patients may struggle to find time to get their flu vaccine this season. With family, work, and other commitments, it seems like getting your flu shot is not as easy as it should be. However, the good news is that urgent care centers provide accessible flu shots for all types of patients.

But what should patients know about getting a flu shot at an urgent care center? Where can Denver residents find accessible urgent care flu shots this season?
