Getting the flu any time of the year is a stressful and uncomfortable experience for all families in the Clemson Blvd in Seneca area. The flu can make it extremely difficult to move forward with your normal routine, and can be especially hard for families who have to juggle multiple commitments at work and school. The single best way to avoid getting the flu this year is to get your annual flu shot. Many families in the Clemson Blvd in Seneca area choose to make an appointment weeks or months in advance with a primary care physician to receive their flu shot.

Here are some of the common questions that our physicians at AFC Urgent Care Clemson Blvd in Seneca receive about the flu shot:
Should everyone in my family get the flu vaccine?
Because the flu is highly contagious and can affect everyone in your home, the best idea is to have everyone in your home get vaccinated for the flu. Older patients and young children are especially susceptible to catching the flu because of their weaker immune systems.
How effective is the flu shot against the flu?
When the flu is circulating in your community, getting the flu shot beforehand can reduce your chance of catching the flu by 40 to 60%.
When should I get the flu shot?
Since it can take a few weeks for antibodies to generate to the flu vaccination, it is a good idea to get the flu shot up to two weeks before it hits your community. Generally, the flu is very common in the fall and winter time, so take precautions to get your vaccination far in advance!
