Vaccines & Immunizations
Vaccination is a safe and effective way to protect you and your family against harmful diseases. All Adult & Child clinics offer a majority of required vaccines except COVID-19. You do not need to be a patient to schedule a vaccination appointment.
CDC's Reasons to Vaccinate
Vaccines lower your chance of getting sick. Vaccines work with your body’s natural defenses to lower the chances of getting certain diseases as well as suffering complications from these diseases.
Vaccines lower your chance of spreading certain diseases. There are many things you want to pass on to your loved ones; a vaccine preventable disease is not one of them. Infants, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems (like those undergoing cancer treatment) are especially vulnerable to vaccine preventable diseases.
Vaccines are one of the safest ways to protect your health. Vaccine side effects are usually mild and go away on their own. Severe side effects are very rare. CDC and other experts carefully review safety data before recommending any vaccine, then continually monitor vaccine safety after approval.
Certain vaccines are required for school, work, travel, and more. Because vaccination protects you and those around you, vaccines can be required for everyday activities as well as for extraordinary situations. It is important that you stay up to date on recommended vaccinations.
