AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach Routine Vaccines
Routine Vaccinations At Your Convenience
Vaccinations are the best way to prevent serious, life-threatening health conditions. Routine immunizations protect against various forms of life-threatening diseases and infections. Behind on your vaccines or don’t know, no worries! AFC Urgent Care Princess Anne Virginia Beach provides available vaccinations on a walk-in basis, so you don’t need an appointment to be seen.
Some common vaccinations we offer at our urgent care center for ages 3+ include:
Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTaP or Tdap)
Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B
Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR)
Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis vaccine (DTaP or Tdap)
CDC recommends diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough (pertussis) vaccination for
everyone. Babies are initially immunized before the age of 2. Young children need two
booster shots to maintain that protection through early childhood. Preteens should get
one shot of Tdap between the ages of 11 and 12 years to boost their immunity.
Pregnant women should get Tdap during the early part of the 3rd trimester of every
pregnancy. By doing so, she helps protect her baby from whooping cough in the first
few months of life. All adults who have never received one should get a shot of Tdap.
Since immunity wears off, boosters are recommended every ten years.
Hepatitis A Vaccine
Hepatitis A is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). Hepatitis A can affect anyone. Vaccines are available for long-term prevention of HAV infection in
persons one year of age and older. All children and adolescents 2–18 years of age who
have not previously received the hepatitis A vaccine should receive it.
Hepatitis B Vaccine
Hepatitis B is a serious disease caused by a virus that attacks the liver. The virus can cause lifelong infection, cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and death.
Hepatitis B vaccine is available for all age groups to prevent HBV infection. The
hepatitis B vaccine is especially recommended for adults living with diabetes and those at high risk for infection due to their jobs, lifestyle, living situations, or country of birth.
Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccine (MMR)
CDC recommends that people get MMR vaccine to protect against measles, mumps,
and rubella. Children should get two doses of MMR vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12 to 15 months of age and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. Teens and adults should also be up to date on their MMR vaccination.
Adults who do not have evidence of immunity should get at least one dose of MMR
vaccine. If an adult is going to be somewhere that poses a high risk for measles or
mumps transmission, they should make sure they have had two doses separated by at
least 28 days. These adults include students at post-high school education institutions, healthcare personnel and international travelers.
Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine
Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease that causes an itchy, blister-like rash. The rash appears first on the chest, back, and face and then spreads over the entire body. CDC recommends two doses of chickenpox vaccine for children, adolescents, and
adults who have never had chickenpox and were never vaccinated. Children are
routinely recommended to receive the first dose at age 12 through 15 months and the
second dose at age 4 through 6 years.
Influenza (flu) Vaccine
With rare exceptions, everyone six months of age and older should get the flu vaccine every season. Vaccination to prevent flu and its potentially serious complications is essential for people at higher risk of developing serious flu complications. Flu shots are appropriate for most people. Learn more on our Influenza (flu) vaccine page.

Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria. Pneumococcal disease is common in young
children, but older adults are at the greatest risk of serious illness and death. There are two kinds of pneumococcal vaccines available:
Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine or PCV13 - recommended for all children
younger than two years old and people two years or older with certain medical
