Grand Rapids Vaccinations & Immunizations

Get Immunized Today with AFC Urgent Care Grand Rapids Today!

Getting vaccinated is important to maintaining health and protecting yourself and others from contracting and/or spreading diseases. Whether you need a seasonal flu shot or vaccinations for international travel, AFC Urgent Care Grand Rapids can keep you up-to-date with your recommended shots, quickly and conveniently.

How Do Vaccinations Work?

Vaccines are important because they build immunity to various diseases. The purpose of the body’s immune system is to defend against infection and illness by making proteins called antibodies. Antibodies destroy germs causing illness and protect you from future infections. Antibodies remain in the bloodstream if the same infection tries to come back again, and the body will already have the defense against it.

Vaccines help you develop immunity, as they are made from the same germs causing diseases, although the germs are weakened or killed, so you don’t get sick. Once these germs are introduced to your body, your immune system reacts in a similar way as it would if the actual disease had been introduced, by making disease-fighting antibodies that give you immunity against the disease should you ever come into contact with it.

  • What's the difference between AFC Urgent Care and emergency room services?

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
