What are vaccines?
Vaccines allow your body to create a defence system against the viruses that cause diseases. They are very effective at preventing diseases from spreading. Vaccines prevent diseases by giving your body a small dose of the virus or bacteria that causes the disease. This tells your body to start making weapons called antibodies which will help protect you if you are ever exposed to the real disease.
At Total Access MD we offer vaccinations for
MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella)
DPT (Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis)
Hep B vaccine
Are vaccines safe? What are the side effects?
Vaccines are one of the impactful and most important health interventions ever invented. They have saved more lives than any other medical advancement in history. While many people worry about the truth behind vaccines and what adverse effects they can cause, these concerns are misplaced. Vaccines are perfectly safe and have undergone extensive testing before being released to the public.
Most people who get vaccines have no side effects, but you can develop side effects after vaccinations, such as pain or swelling at the injection site, body aches and pains, or fever following certain vaccinations. Vaccine side effects, are typically mild and go away in a few days.
