Available Immunizations

Hepatitis A & B

  • The Hepatitis A vaccine prevents a serious liver disease caused by  the hepatitis A virus (HAV).
  • The Hepatitis B vaccine can prevent  hepatitis B. Because Hepatitis B has been linked to primary liver cancer, the Hepatitis B vaccine has been recognized as the first anti-cancer vaccine.

Meningitis

  • The meningitis vaccine can prevent 4 types of meningococcal  disease, including 2 of the 3 types  most common in the United  States  and a type that causes epidemics in Africa. Meningococcal   disease  is a serious illness, caused by a bacteria that may cause an  infection  of fluid surrounding the brain and the spinal cord.

Flu

  • The flu (or influenza) vaccine can prevent a contagious disease caused by the influenza virus, which spreads from person to person  through coughing or sneezing.  Influenza  viruses are always changing.  Therefore, influenza vaccines are updated every year, and  an annual vaccination is recommended.

MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)

  • MMR vaccine can prevent the Measles  virus which causes rash, cough, runny nose, eye irritation,  and fever.  Measles can also lead  to  ear infection, pneumonia, seizures (jerking and staring), brain damage, and  death.
  • MMR vaccine can prevent the Mumps virus which causes fever,  headache, and  swollen glands.  Mumps can also lead to  deafness,  meningitis  (infection of the brain and spinal cord covering), painful swelling of the  testicles or ovaries, and, rarely, death.
  • MMR vaccine can prevent the Rubella virus which causes rash,  mild  fever, and arthritis (mostly in women).  If  a woman gets rubella while she is pregnant, she could  have a miscarriage or her baby  could be born with serious birth defects.

Tetanus (T-dap, Td)

  • The tetanus vaccine prevents Tetanus which is caused by a germ  that enters the  body through a cut or wound.  Tetanus  causes serious,  painful spasms and rigidity of the skeletal muscles.
