2010 Flu Shots are Available for Anyone Age Over the Age of 9 and the cost is $20

The press release information below reflects the 2009 flu vaccine and NOT the 2010 flu vaccine:
Cypress Fairbanks Urgent Care Center will be providing low-cost, annual flu shots to the community starting October 1st, while supplies last.  Anyone over the age of 18 is eligible.        

An annual vaccination is recommended because strains of flu virus change from year to year. October or November is the best time because infection-fighting antibodies that protect against the flu take about two weeks to develop in the body. But even if you wait, a flu shot may still help prevent illness since the flu season can last until May. It is important to remember that a vaccination does not offer complete protection against illness, but if you do get the flu afterwards, you are less at risk of developing flu-related complications.

The Urgent Care Center is open 7 days a week: Monday – Friday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9a.m. – 9p.m.  Walk in and receive care when you need it most - no appointment is necessary. Patients are treated on a first-come, first-serve basis and are seen as quickly as possible. Most health plans, as well as cash, personal check, Visa, and MasterCard are accepted.  The Cypress Fairbanks Urgent Care Center is located at 9110 Barker Cypress Road, near West Road.  Call 281-517-9900 or visit www.CyFairUrgentCare.com for more information.
