Vaccinations Q & A


What are vaccinations?

Vaccinations, also known as vaccines, expose your body to dead or weakened germs, which help you develop antibodies to specific illnesses and diseases. Vaccinations help your body fight off germs.

Which vaccinations are available?

Some of the many vaccinations available at New York Medical Vascular Care include the following:

  • Flu
  • Chickenpox
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Diphtheria
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Measles, mumps, and rubella
  • Meningococcal
  • Pneumococcal
  • Shingles
  • Polio
  • Rotavirus
  • Whooping cough
  • Tetanus

Your provider might give you or your child vaccinations as an injection or a mist that you can inhale. They will review all options with you before you are vaccinated to help you make an informed decision about your health.


Are vaccines right for me?

Your New York Medical Vascular Care provider can let you know which vaccinations, if any, might be a good match for you. They will review your medical history, past vaccination records, and risk factors to personalize a vaccine regimen you’re comfortable with. The decision to receive vaccinations for yourself or your children is entirely up to you.

What should I expect when getting a vaccination?

During vaccine administration, you will be asked to relax on a comfortable exam table or chair. Your New York Medical Vascular Care provider will either inject the vaccine into your arm or provide a nasal mist for you to breathe in.

Vaccinations boost your body’s antibody production, which helps reduce your risk of getting sick. While you might feel a slight pinch during each injection, it’s over after a second or two.

Some vaccinations require a series of injections spaced apart over time to provide you with the most effective protection against the disease.


Are there any side effects associated with vaccines?

While most people don’t experience serious issues after getting vaccinated, you might notice a few side effects like:

  • Soreness at the injection site
  • Mild fever
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle aches
  • Headaches

These side effects are signs of your body building immunity to the illness, and they often go away within a day or two.
