AFC Urgent Care in New Britain

Dr. Iftikhar Ali, Medical Director of AFC Urgent Care at 135 East Main Street in New Britain on Saturday, December 10 8am – 5pm  is extending the offer of free flu shots to the general public after the popularity of the center’s program that provided free flu shots for retired members of the military on Veterans Day.

Dr. Iftikhar Ali wants to ensure that everyone who wants to receive a flu shot is able to, despite their insurance coverage or financial circumstances.                       

Early December is the ideal month to receive a flu shot for optimum protection from the flu virus.

The flu can lead to life-threatening complications, especially for those with medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and heart disease, During recent flu seasons, between 80% and 90% of flu related deaths have occurred in people 65 years and older. Reducing the overall number of flu cases helps to reduce exposure for the high-risk population.
