For immunizations, we request that you book an appointment to ensure we have the appropriate vaccines available for your visit.
Vaccines help protect against a variety of preventable diseases. Persons who are vaccinated are typically less likely to catch the illness they were vaccinated for; if they do catch it, it’s usually a mild case. Either way, vaccines are a foundation of optimal health at all ages. They have saved millions of lives over the years.
Some vaccines are required by a specific age (especially for infants, children, and teenagers). If you weren’t immunized when you were younger, you can likely get the shot now. It is never too late to talk about immunizations with your doctor. Our team at Gwinnett Urgent Care & Family Practice would be happy to discuss your medical history and see what vaccines may help you.
Common immunizations include:
Some vaccines are mandatory for specific jobs or travels. If you are going abroad, learning what immunizations may be required is always a good thing.
Getting the flu shot every year is a healthcare best practice that every eligible adult should take advantage of. The flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself from the flu (influenza) virus. Flu season can range from October to May, so you should get the vaccine as soon as it becomes available in the Fall. If you don’t get the shot by December or January, it isn’t too late to get it in the Spring.
The immunization becomes effective about 2 weeks after injection. Even once fully protected, it is a good idea to continue following proper hygiene precautions, such as washing your hands and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when coughing.
Getting vaccinated is important and prevents you from not only getting the flu but also from exposing those who are particularly at risk (toddlers, seniors) and/or who can’t receive the vaccines due to medical conditions. We will make sure you are eligible before giving you the flu shot.
