Immunizations are a fact of life for everyone. Whether vaccinating your child per the guidelines of the Dallas Independent School District or being immunized for employment or travel purposes, there are many reasons to seek vaccinations. Today, vaccines are available for many preventable diseases or can reduce the risk of contracting them. They protect people from serious diseases such as polio, yellow fever, malaria, dengue fever, and others.
Our services include the flu shot, which is recommended for everyone annually. We also offer vaccinations for meningitis, pneumonia, and shingles, among many others. They are just part of our extensive range of preventative healthcare services, as we’re committed to helping people avoid illnesses, as much as treating them, and live long, healthy lives.
A shot is something most people would rather avoid. Although it may hurt slightly, it can be very beneficial. The vaccine introduces specific germs, or parts of them, into the body; the individual pathogens have either been killed or significantly weakened. Once in the bloodstream, the immune system develops antibodies to these germs and is then able to fight them off if exposure occurs in the future. A person doesn’t have to get a disease to develop an immunity to it.
Students in Dallas are required to be immunized against tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, poliomyelitis, measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, and more. They’re also required to follow a schedule, from birth through 18 years, issued by the CDC, local school district, and the Texas Department of State Health Services. However, contrary to what many believe, vaccines aren’t just for children. As a leading immunization provider, we provide the following for adults:
