East Meadow Wellness Vaccines at AFC Urgent Care
Treatment for diseases has come a long way, but the best tool we have to fight serious health problems is to prevent them entirely. Vaccinations, also called immunizations, protect us from various forms of disease and infection. Many diseases we have vaccinations for are contagious and used to pose a serious threat of epidemic to the population, particularly children. Mortality rates worldwide have gone down significantly thanks to the widespread availability of vaccinations.
How do Vaccinations Work?
Vaccinations work by taking advantage of the body’s immune system memory. When you receive a vaccination, you are being injected with a small, weakened strain of the disease you are protecting yourself from. When the body detects these invaders, it creates antibodies that learn how the virus functions and the most effective means of destroying it. Once your body knows how to kill a disease, it remembers it forever. If you are ever infected with a stronger version of the disease, your body will be able to take care of it before it becomes a serious problem.
We offer a wide range of common vaccinations for people of every age. For children six months and up, we can provide regular vaccines against diseases like hepatitis B, and PCV. For adults, we offer flu shots, and tetanus shots, shingles vaccines, and many more. Contact us and let us know which vaccine you need.
To discover which vaccinations you've received, look up your vaccination history. Your vaccination record is a comprehensive document that details the history of all of your vaccines as a youngster and as an adult. To access your vaccination record you can ask your family or doctor if they have your up to date report.
