It’s normal to have questions before you go for your vaccinations. Keep a record of your family’s current vaccinations at home. If you ever move, then you’ll need to bring those records to your new doctor. Something to remember is to go when you’re feeling well. If you’re sick, then it’s best to wait until you’re feeling better. If you miss a routine immunization, it’s easy to catch up at another appointment. For any other questions, contact our specialists at our Orange, CT office.

If you’re not vaccinated against the measles, then you could bring it back to the states with you. To prevent it from happening, you should be vaccinated before hopping on a plane. Find out which vaccinations you need by checking out the CDC Health Travel Site for more details. When you know which immunizations you require, come by to get them at our Orange, CT clinic, today.

What to Know About Vaccinations & Immunizations

How Vaccinations Work

If you get sick, your body develops antibodies to defend against the invaders. Consider this, if you catch the chickenpox then your body forms protection to it. If you’re exposed to it again then you most likely won’t catch it because of your immunity. This is how vaccines work.
Bacteria or viruses can be more dangerous to humans in their natural form. You might survive and develop immunity but why take that risk? Vaccines were created specifically to expose the human immune system to these diseases in a way that doesn’t threaten their lives. Find out more at our Orange, CT walk-in clinic.

Why Are Vaccinations Important?

Each year people in the U.S. become ill with preventable diseases. Vaccinations help you stay healthy so that you can spend time with your family, go to work, and participate in all the activities in your life. Not only that but when you get your vaccinations in our Orange, CT office, you’re helping to extend protection to the rest of the community. This is also called community or herd immunity.
Immunizations work better if the number of people who get them is higher than those who do not. Reports indicate that about 95 percent of diseases have been either reduced or eliminated because of vaccines. However, they can make a come back if you don’t do your part to get your protection through inoculations.
Vaccinations don’t guarantee 100 percent protection. An unvaccinated person can infect a vaccinated person. This makes it even more imperative for those who can get their vaccinations to do so. We’re open at our Orange, CT clinic every day of the week for walk-in patients.

Do Adults Need VAccinations?

Don’t fail to get your vaccinations because you’re an adult now. Even adults need to get booster shots and additional vaccinations. For example, you need to get the flu shot before the season starts every year. Other vaccinations are only necessary every 10 years. The reason we need these boosters is due to our aging body and immune system. For more information about which vaccinations you need, please contact our medical specialists at our Orange, CT clinic.
