The Best Place to Get a Flu Shot if You’re in Highland, MI
Nobody likes to experience the flu, which at best will put a crimp in planned activities and at worst could land someone in the hospital with life-threatening complications. The No. 1 way to prevent an influenza infection is to get an annual flu shot, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). However, many people struggle to fit this important tradition into their school or work schedule at a time when their doctor’s office is open. Fortunately, if you’re in the Highland, Michigan, area, you can get your flu vaccine on your schedule, with no appointment needed, at Springfield Urgent Care.
Our walk-in clinic in Highland is open every day, including weekends, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. In addition to flu shots, we also offer flu testing and treatment. Our wait times are short, and our services cost less than those at the emergency room. We treat patients of all ages, and we also accept many health insurance plans.
Who Should Get a Flu Shot?
The CDC recommends that almost everyone, including infants 6 months old and up, be vaccinated against the flu.
