At Advanced Family Medical Care, we gladly offer immunizations for all ages. We understand that you may have questions or concerns about what vaccinations are recommended at certain ages or what they are for. Patient education is very important to us, and we want you to feel comfortable voicing any questions or concerns you may have. We do recommend following the CDC guidelines and schedules for immunizations, which can be found here.
Immunizations treat a wide array of diseases, and while some are standard for everyone, others are more specific, depending on places you have or will be traveling. Additionally, many immunizations, especially for children, are given in smaller doses that require “booster” vaccines as their immune systems mature. It is crucial to the overall efficacy of the vaccine that these boosters are maintained; however, if you or your child misses one simply talk to your doctor about getting caught up.
If you have any questions about immunizations or would like to schedule an appointment, please call our office at 972-985-8000.
