Why Are Vaccines Important?
Vaccines are a modern marvel as they help to protect not only yourself and your loved ones for potentially dangerous illnesses and diseases, such as Measles, HPV, and the Flu. Vaccines greatly reduce your risk of contracting diseases by helping your body to naturally build its defenses again these potentially fatal illnesses.
Potential Side Effects of Vaccines
Like many difference medical treatments and preventative care, vaccines also come with potential side effects. The good new is, more often than not, these side effects are minor and not permanent. During your visit, your Garden City provider will go over potential side effects, such as:
- Mild fever
- Pain, Swelling, or redness where the shot was given
- Muscle & joint aches
Serious side effects from vaccines and immunizations are very rare. Statistically, if 1 million doses of a vaccine are given, only 1 to 2 people may have a severe allergic reaction. If you are not feeling well after a vaccine is completed, it is important to contact your doctor regarding more serious side effects that may be connected to the vaccine.
COVID-19 & COVID Antibody Testing is also available.
