Preventing Disease and Supporting Health
Immunizations* are an important part of maintaining health and protecting yourself from contagious diseases.
Immediate Medical Care IMC offers select vaccinations and immunizations for you and your family at all seven locations with no appointment necessary.
Vaccines are prepared and administered to improve immunity to specific diseases. They typically contain an altered form of the microbes, toxin or protein from the disease-causing agent. By stimulating the immune system through these injections, the body undergoes the immunization process. Once immunized, the immune system recognizes and destroys microorganisms related to the disease or sickness for which you or your child were vaccinated.
Available vaccines and immunizations include:
- Flu shot (for patients 6 months old)
- Tdap: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough)
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- TB skin testing
- Measles, mumps, & rubella (MMR)
