Vaccines Q&A

What are vaccines?

Vaccines consist of various substances, such as live viruses, dead viruses, or man-made materials. All Health Medical Group specialists inject vaccines into your body, allowing you to build immunity to illnesses and diseases and reduce your chance of getting sick. 

Even if you do become ill after getting vaccinated, your symptoms are often much less severe.

What are common vaccines for adults?

Some of the many vaccines available at All Health Medical Group for adults include vaccinations for:

  • Flu
  • COVID-19
  • Shingles
  • Pneumococcal
  • Meningococcal 
  • Tetanus
  • Diphtheria
  • Varicella  
  • Pertussis 
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Hepatitis A and B

You can get some vaccines, including the flu vaccine, every year to reduce your chance of getting sick. The All Health Medical Group team personalizes vaccine regimens based on your risk factors, vaccination history, and preferences.

Are vaccines right for me?

Vaccines are preventive medicine treatments, so you and your provider determine which vaccines you’re a good candidate for. They review the risks and benefits with you and let you know what to expect during your injection. 

All Health Medical Group specialists also check your vital signs, review your medical history, and complete a physical exam prior to administering vaccinations. They let you know which vaccines are a good match for you.

What should I expect when getting vaccines?

The process of getting vaccines is simple, fast, and virtually painless. Your provider uses a very fine needle to inject vaccines into your body, often into your upper arm. 

Some vaccines are available in the form of a mist you breathe in. There’s no downtime afterward, so you can resume a normal routine right away. 

Do vaccines cause any side effects?

You may experience side effects with some vaccines, such as swelling or redness at the injection site. Other vaccines can cause minor flu-like symptoms like fever, fatigue, and muscle aches while your body’s immune system builds up a defense to specific illnesses. 

If you experience severe side effects after getting vaccinated, call the All Health Medical Group office to chat with your provider.
