Vaccination Clinic


Immunization for Adults, Children, Students, Immigrants, Travelers and Senior Citizens

You may not realize that you need vaccines throughout your adult life. Vaccines are still important to your health and here are just three reasons why.

You may be at risk for serious diseases that are still common

Each year thousands of adults get sick from diseases that could be prevented by vaccines — some people are hospitalized, and some even die.

Even if you got all your vaccines as a child, the protection from some vaccines can wear off over time. You may also be at risk for other diseases due to your age, job, lifestyle, travel, or health conditions.

You can’t afford to risk getting sick.

Even healthy people can get sick enough to miss work or school. If you’re sick, you may not be able to take care of your family or other responsibilities.

You can protect your health and the health of those around you by getting the recommended vaccines.

Vaccines lower your chance of getting sick.

Vaccines work with your body’s natural defence to lower the chances of getting certain diseases as well as suffering complications from these diseases.

Vaccines lower your chance of spreading certain diseases.

There are many things you want to pass on to your loved ones; a vaccine preventable disease is not one of them. Infants, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems (like those undergoing cancer treatment) are especially vulnerable to vaccine preventable diseases.

Vaccines are one of the safest ways to protect your health.

Vaccine side effects are usually mild and go away on their own. Severe side effects are very rare.

Immunization is ONE OF THE BEST FORMS OF PROTECTION for all-

Based on your age, health conditions, vaccines you received as a child, and other factors, you may need additional vaccines Find out at: www.cdc.gov/travel
