At Urgent MD, we provide several vaccinations, including the seasonal flu shot(s) and pneumonia vaccine, to keep you healthy throughout the year. These vaccines helps your body fight off disease by kick-starting your body's natural protective mechanisms. The vaccine introduces a small amount of an agent that resembles a disease, into your body in a weakened or dead form. Your body mounts a defense against this intruder, forming antibodies against the real disease, so that when you encounter the disease in your everyday life, your body is already equipped to fight it off.
At a Urgent MD clinic, we can advise you on which vaccines may be right for you. The CDC recommends certain vaccines for healthy adults, including influenza (flu) every year and tetanus. Older adults may need to be vaccinated against shingles and pneumococcal disease. Diabetics are urged to get vaccinated against hepatitis B.
Our providers will take the time to answer all your questions about vaccines so you can make the right decision for you and your family. We provide most vaccines at our clinics, but we won't give you any unnecessary shots.
