Vaccinations Q & A
What are vaccinations?
Which vaccinations are available?
Some of the many vaccinations available at New York Specialty Clinics include the following:
- Hepatitis A and B
- Human papillomavirus (HPV)
- Measles, mumps, and rubella
- Whooping cough
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?
What should I expect when getting a vaccination?
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
- Muscle aches
These side effects are signs of your body building immunity to the illness, and they often go away within a day or two.
