Treatment for common diseases has come a long way as medicine has evolved, with many previously fatal diseases eradicated due to the rise of vaccinations. A vaccination will immunize your body against different forms of disease, infection and side effects. Some vaccinations are required annually, while some can stay effective in your body for years. In order to make sure your vaccinations are up-to-date, visit AFC Urgent Care Stamford!
What is a Vaccination?
A vaccination also called an immunization, occurs when a weakened strain of a virus or disease is introduced to your body through an injection. By introducing the disease, your body will be able to produce antibodies that will recognize and destroy it without you feeling symptoms. After your initial dose, many vaccinations require a booster shot after a certain amount of time to maintain your immunity.
