Vaccinations and Immunizations
Vaccines and Immunizations We Provide
Influenza (Flu shot)
The influenza vaccine, or better known as the flu vaccine, protects against seasonal influenza viruses. Getting vaccinated not only helps protect you from getting sick with the flu but also prevents the spread of the virus to vulnerable populations.
The tetanus vaccine is typically given early in childhood as part of the Tdap vaccine. However, it is recommended that individuals get a tetanus shot at least every ten years or sooner if you believe you been infected as a result of a cut/puncture caused by a nail or other metal object.
Tdap vaccine can protect adolescents and adults from diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough. If your child has not received the Tdap vaccine visit us during our extended hours for this critical vaccine.
