How important is it to stay up to date on your shots?
It’s really important to stay up to date! This is because immunizations help protect people from diseases that may not be easily treatable or that could lead to serious complications.
Although children’s immune systems are strong, they’re not necessarily strong enough to prevent and protect against certain diseases, so some immunizations are necessary. Older adults are especially vulnerable to disease since they have weaker immune systems, so older adults need some immunizations too. There are also people with impaired immune systems that make them more vulnerable to disease, and these people rely on others to get immunized to help prevent the spread of disease.
When you get immunized, you protect yourself and others from the spread of disease, and when a community of people gets immunized, they protect everyone in the community. If a community is exposed to a disease but the people are already immunized against it, the risk of an epidemic will be lower.
The vast majority of health professionals and researchers recommend immunizations, so you definitely should get them!
What is an immunization clinic?
An immunizations clinic is where you can go to keep up to date on your immunizations or catch up on your immunizations. The clinic can provide many of the common shots you’ll need to stay well and keep others well. You can take your entire family to an immunization clinic like Elite Health Center & Family Care.
What type of immunization shots can I get?
Here at Elite Health Center & Family Care, you can get many of the shots the CDC (the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the AAP (the American Academy of Pediatrics) recommend. Our immunizations are recommended for youths ages 11 and up and adults.
Our clinic provides many common vaccines and shots, including:
Influenza shots (flu shots)
Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (TDaP)
Hepatitis B (HepB)
A tetanus shot may be necessary if you haven’t had one in ten or more years, or if you have a wound that was caused by something that was unclean.
You should ask a professional if you and your loved ones should get additional shots based on your medical history. You should also ask if you and your family need any travel vaccines. You may need travel immunizations if you plan on travelling soon or often.
