Vaccines Q&A

What should I know about vaccines?

Vaccines protect your health by teaching your immune system how to identify harmful germs and develop a system to fight off those germs. Vaccines are injections, nasal sprays, or oral medications that contain very tiny amounts of a dead or weakened germ. 

Vaccinations and immunizations are terms associated with vaccines.


Vaccination is when your health care provider gives you a vaccine. Most vaccines are given as a shot. 


Immunization is the process your immune system goes through to develop a defense mechanism (antibodies) against the harmful germ without it making you sick. 

How do vaccines work?

Vaccines work by activating your immune response. When you receive a vaccine, your body recognizes the germ as a foreign and harmful agent and makes antibodies to kill it. Your immune system also develops memory cells for the germ and the antibody.

If you come in contact with the germ at a later time, your immune system remembers the germ and quickly creates the antibodies necessary to kill it, preventing or reducing serious illness. 

When do I need vaccines?

Jurani Clinic follows the vaccination guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). When you need vaccines depends on your age, health history, immunization history, and risk of exposure.

Most vaccines are given during childhood, but adults need vaccines, too. You also need booster shots to maintain immunity against certain diseases like tetanus.

Jurani Clinic gives vaccines during well-child visits, annual physical exams, and as needed.

You also need an annual flu vaccine. The flu comes from the influenza virus, a highly contagious germ that has the ability to change quickly. Your annual flu vaccine contains the virus or viruses predicted to be most prevalent during the upcoming flu season. 

How can I be sure vaccines are safe?

If you’re worried about the safety of vaccines, talk to your provider at Jurani Clinic. Vaccines undergo years of testing before they’re released to the general population to make sure they’re safe for everyone.

You may experience pain, redness, or swelling at the site of your vaccine injection, but these side effects resolve quickly. Your provider may recommend avoiding vaccines if you have a compromised immune system or a history of an allergic reaction to a vaccine.
