Vaccines save lives and they have saved more lives than any other medical intervention in the past 50 years in the United States. Before vaccines, many Americans died from diseases that we can now prevent. Vaccines prevent diseases that can be dangerous or even deadly, and they greatly reduce the risk of infection by working with the body’s natural defenses to safely develop an immunity to a disease. A vaccine stimulates your immune system and produces antibodies, just as if you were actually exposed to the disease. After receiving your vaccination, you develop an immunity to a disease, without of course getting the disease first. Are you or your family looking to get up-to-date vaccinations? If so, reach out to our team at AFC Urgent Care here in Loxahatchee Groves, Florida, today. No appointments necessary, walk-ins welcome!
Where do I go to get a vaccine?
Getting vaccinated is easy and convenient. Urgent care clinics in your area offer vaccinations, and so do pharmacies, travel clinics, health centers, health departments, and your local doctor’s office. If you need a vaccination urgently, or it’s top of mind and you want it done sooner rather than later, book an appointment with your local urgent care clinic. Most don’t require appointments, so all you need to do is walk-in and wait to see a healthcare provider. Your local urgent care clinic will outline what vaccines they have available, and if necessary, they may make recommendations on where to receive others that you and your family may need.
Where can I get vaccinations for travel near me?
Before you depart out of the country, vaccines are a must before you head to the airport. The good news is that you can visit your local urgent care clinic for travel vaccines or speak with your doctor about what vaccinations you will need to make your adventure abroad safer. Health centers and health departments are also other options, so there is no shortage of places to turn to for vaccinations. The good part of urgent care clinics however is that they will take you in quickly and provide you with the vaccination you need, before you venture off to places like Africa and Asia. You should speak with your travel agent, or research your destination online, to see what vaccinations you may need before arrival.
Why should I get my family and myself vaccinated?
There are a lot of reasons for you and your family to get vaccinated. When you play your part and get vaccinated, it helps protect others. Just think of how many people travel across the globe on a plane in a span of hours: it is easy now to see how diseases spread. Vaccines will keep you healthy and you should receive them throughout your life to protect against infections. When you skip out on getting vaccines, you leave yourself vulnerable to a number of illnesses, like HPV, hepatitis B, both leading causes of cancer, and shingles, influenza, and pneumococcal disease. Vaccinations are safe, easy to get, and they will not give you the disease they were designed to prevent. Most of all, vaccines can help keep you alive and they mean the difference between life and death, and they also help save lives of others around you. Moreover, getting vaccines will help your pocketbook – it can be expensive getting severely sick and missing work.
