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. Doing so helps your body fight off germs to avoid getting sick.

Which vaccinations are available?

Some of the many vaccinations available at New York Specialty Clinics 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 you can inhale. They review all options with you before getting vaccinated to make an informed decision about your health.

Are vaccines right for me?

Your New York Specialty Clinics provider can let you know which vaccinations, if any, might be a good match for you. They review your medical history, past vaccination records, and your 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 relax on a comfortable exam table or chair. Your provider at New York Specialty Clinics can inject a vaccine into your arm or give you a nasal mist to breathe in. 

Vaccinations boost your body’s antibody production, reducing your risk of getting sick over time. 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 give you the most protection against disease.

Are there any side effects associated with vaccines?

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

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

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