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 a defense against it.
Vaccines help you develop immunity by introducing your body to a weakened or killed version of the germ causing the diseases without getting you sick. Once you have received the injection, your immune system reacts by making disease-fighting antibodies that give you immunity against the disease should you ever encounter it.
AFC Urgent Care San Diego adheres to best practices and guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We offer many types of immunizations and vaccinations for children, adults, and seniors which include:
