The right vaccine choice for you and your family depends on factors such as age, vaccination history, risk factors, preferences, and lifestyle habits.
The main benefits of receiving immunizations at Guardian Angels Health Center include a lower chance of getting sick and having less-severe symptoms. There’s little to no downtime after getting vaccinated, and it takes just a minute or two to complete.
After reviewing your medical history, your Guardian Angels Health Center provider lets you know if you’re a candidate for receiving immunizations, and which are best for you. They also check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and ask about your past vaccinations.
Getting immunized is a simple, quick procedure. You simply relax on a comfortable chair or exam table while your provider gently inserts a tiny needle into your arm or leg. The slight pinch you feel lasts just a second. For some vaccinations, you can breathe in a mist instead of receiving an injection.
After you receive vaccinations, most people resume their normal activities immediately. However, some immunizations may cause minor side effects like a low-grade fever, muscle aches, fatigue, nasal congestion, and other mild flu-like symptoms. If your symptoms become uncomfortable, it’s important to let your provider know.
You or your child might need a series of multiple immunizations to have the most protection against certain illnesses.
