Vaccinations in South Plainfield, NJ
Getting sick can throw you in for a loop, altering plans you have for the immediate future and affecting your ability to go about your day-to-day life. In order to prevent unexpected flu or other serious diseases from disrupting your plans, you can get vaccinated for a number of viruses and infections at your local AFC Urgent Care. A vaccination will prevent you from contracting an illness and from spreading it through your home or workplace. At AFC Urgent Care, we provide immunizations for people of all ages.
What is a Vaccination?
A vaccination, or immunization, is an injection of a weakened virus or disease. Instead of getting you sick, your body is introduced to the strain and begins to build up antibodies to fight and destroy the disease in the most effective way possible. Once you have been vaccinated against a virus, you will be immune to it for a certain period of time. Most vaccinations will require a booster shot or follow-up dose in order to stay up-to-date.
