Life-Saving Vaccinations for Your Child
There was a time when the spread of disease was uncontrollable in our world. Millions of people died from illnesses that are now treatable and preventable. Thankfully, today we have vaccinations that ensure your child stays strong and healthy. Some of the vaccinations we administer include:
- Pediatric Hepatitis A & B
When Is It Time for Flu Shots?
Avoid the flu by getting flu shots. It’s that simple! For young and old, flu vaccines prevent sickness, hospitalization, and even death. In fact, each year in the United States, 200,000 people or more are hospitalized with serious flu symptoms. For infants, young children, and elderly individuals, flu shots are particularly important.
Even though some may have concerns about the shot, the side effects are minimal. Minor soreness and swelling may occur around the area where you received the shot. Occasionally, low-grade fevers or minor aches are present, but they subside quickly. Our medical specialists are happy to address all of your concerns about the flu shot as well as the common side effects.
General Adult Vaccines
Nobody likes getting a shot. At our family clinic, we make the entire process as quick and painless as possible. In addition, we can provide an intradermal shot. This method uses a smaller needle that is injected into the skin rather than the muscle. It’s a safe, reliable, and relatively pain-free vaccination option for people who are 18 to 64 years of age. We also provide adult vaccines to prevent many other illnesses, such as malaria, yellow fever, and pneumonia. They include:
- The Flu
- Adult Hepatitis A & B
- Immune System Booster Shots
The Importance of an Immunization Schedule
By sticking to an immunization schedule, you protect yourself and those around you from illness. For instance, some people are unable to get vaccinations or do not develop an immunity after vaccination. Therefore, their only protection against specific diseases is for others to get immunized so the illness is less common. The more people that are immunized, the healthier our environment is. Ask us about the right vaccinations for your family.
