Immunizations Q&A

What are immunizations?

Immunizations, or vaccinations, are shots or nasal sprays that protect you from becoming ill or developing severe symptoms of an illness. You might require vaccines as a condition of going to school, working at your job, or completing the immigration process. You may desire immunizations to prevent you and your family from becoming ill.

What are the benefits of immunizations?

The main benefit of receiving immunizations is a lower chance of developing severe symptoms of an illness or disease. Vaccinations also lessen your chance of getting sick altogether by strengthening your body’s natural immunity and ability to fight germs.

Which immunizations are available?

Clinica Medica Hispana offers an array of immunizations that can protect you against:

  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Tetanus
  • Chickenpox
  • Shingles
  • Whooping cough
  • Flu
  • COVID-19
  • Diphtheria
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Pneumococcal diseases
  • Meningococcal diseases
  • Rotavirus

The vaccinations that are best for you depend on your immunization history, medical history, age, and health goals. Unless you require a vaccine for school, work, sports, or immigration, the choice to get vaccinated is entirely up to you.

Your provider reviews your medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle habits to determine which immunizations you’re a candidate for and may complete a physical exam and diagnostic testing before providing vaccine recommendations.

What happens when receiving immunizations?

You might receive immunizations via injections or a nasal mist you simply breathe in. Regardless of which method your provider uses, the process of getting vaccinated is quick and simple. Your provider might gently inject mRNA, dead viruses, or weakened viruses into your body, allowing it to build antibodies and improve immunity. Afterward, there’s no downtime.

What are the common side effects?

Not all vaccinations are associated with side effects. Those that do may cause temporary swelling or redness at the injection site, a low-grade fever, fatigue, muscle soreness, or other mild flu-like symptoms. 

How often do I need immunizations?

The frequency in which you should get vaccinated depends on the type of immunization you receive and how many previous doses you’ve had. 

Some vaccines require annual administration to be most effective. Others require a series of injections spaced apart over time. Your Clinica Medica Hispana specialist lets you know when to schedule your next set of vaccines.
