Immunizations

Having immunization for yourself and your family members is a proven effective armament against the most common threats that might endanger your health and cause a break from your routine at home and at work. Immunization works by pre-conditioning the body’s defenses to the virus or vectors that cause a certain disease. As it is introduced to the body in a tolerable level, the body develops the antibody and the immunity so any future instances of the viral entry to your system, the body is ready to ward off the external threat effectively.

We have vaccinations available for adults, such as flu, pneumonia, and shingles shots. Please take note that we can only administer shots for patients aged 18 and above. A doctor’s prescription may be required for certain shots.

If you have plans of traveling to a tropical country overseas in the next few weeks, it may be a good idea to get your travel vaccines updated. Besides, vaccines help prevent your vacation from getting ruined and it keeps you healthy all throughout your trip. Still, whether you have travel plans or not, the wise thing to do is to keep your body’s defenses up. No matter how modern our technology has become or how advanced our medicines have developed, prevention is still better than the cure.
