Vaccinations Q & A
What are vaccinations?
Vaccinations, which are often injections or sometimes nasal sprays, contain dead viruses, live viruses, mRNA, or other substances that enhance your body’s ability to build immunity to certain viruses and diseases.
Vaccines greatly reduce your risk of getting sick and experiencing serious symptoms. If you do get sick after being vaccinated, your symptoms are often much less severe.
What are some common vaccinations?
Common vaccinations available at Care Fast Urgent Care include:
- Hepatitis A and B
- Human papillomavirus (HPV)
- Whooping cough
The type of vaccination that might be right for you or your child depends on age, vaccination history, overall health and wellness, lifestyle, and preferences. Care Fast Urgent Care providers discuss your medical history and the pros and cons of each vaccine before you decide whether to get vaccinated.
What happens during a vaccination appointment?
When getting a vaccine at Care Fast Urgent Care, you rest in a comfortable chair or exam table. Your provider carefully injects vaccines into your upper arm, leg, or another area of your body. The procedure is fast and virtually painless. You might receive a nasal spray instead of an injection in some cases.
You may need a vaccine each year to maximize its effectiveness, just once, or in divided doses depending on the type of vaccine you receive, your age, and your risk factors. You can follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for vaccines or work with your Care Fast Urgent Care provider to customize a plan that works best for you and your family.
Are there any side effects with vaccinations?
Talk with your provider to determine which side effects to watch for after getting certain vaccinations. You or your children might experience mild flu-like symptoms, fatigue, a low fever, redness and swelling at the injection site, or tenderness at the injection site.
