[...] always is a wonderful NP

I can’t say enough good things about the person that treated me at the Minute Clinic. Her name is [...] and she was excellent at treating me. She listened and took her time to treat me.
June 3, 2021
I watch the practitioner google what was wrong with her. Zero confidence - and then I was forced to go to an urgent care center where I received answers. CVS was a total waste of money. Honestly, I should not be charged

Cheerful, competent

Easy to use terminal upon arrival, not a long wait, convenient. I plan to use Minute Clinic for more of my medical needs versus having to wait weeks to get into my doctors office.

Flu Shots at MinuteClinic in Newton, MA

Our staff is trained to help you understand risks of the flu as well as administer the flu vaccine. During your visit, you will also learn about ways to help prevent the flu this season. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that people six months of age or older be vaccinated against influenza annually. Since you’re likely to fall into that criteria, you can just stop by the MinuteClinic at 978 Boylston Street and get your flu shot at your convenience while picking up your prescriptions or same-day photo order!

About the Flu (Influenza)

Influenza is an infectious respiratory disease. Generally, the flu may resolve on its own. However, if the flu goes untreated, you may be at risk for complications that can be life-threatening. Those that might be at a higher risk of severe flu complications include children under 5, adults over 65, pregnant women, and people with chronic illnesses or compromised immune systems. If you fall into any of these categories, it is essential that you take strides towards flu prevention by getting your flu shot at MinuteClinic. The flu shot works by exposing you to an inactive flu virus and the flu vaccines cause antibodies to develop in the body after vaccination. These antibodies will help to protect you if you are exposed to the flu virus. Essentially, getting a flu shot prepares your body to fight the flu.

Why Get A Flu Shot?

Getting vaccinated helps to protect you and the people around you. Influenza sends a countless number of patients into hospitals each year – don’t be one of them. There are two types of flu shots – a seasonal vaccine for adults and children (preservative-free available, upon request) and a high dose vaccine (for ages 65+). While you can take preventative measures, getting immunized with the influenza vaccine is your best defense against the flu. Each year, new strains of the flu develop. While you may have gotten a flu shot in the past, you may not be protected from the new strands. Although flu vaccines may not be 100% effective, it is still the best defense against the virus. Don’t fall victim to the flu this year – stop by MinuteClinic and get your flu shot today!
