Which vaccinations are best for me?

After reviewing your medical history and goals, the Tri Cities Urgent Care team determines which vaccines are best for you. They discuss the risks and benefits of each vaccine and draw up a personalized plan. Vaccinations that match your and your family’s needs depend on age, previous vaccination history, risk factors, lifestyle, and preferences.

What happens when receiving vaccinations?

In many cases, vaccinations involve an injection. While you rest comfortably, a provider gently injects substances into your body, often through your upper arm or leg. While you might feel a tiny pinch during the injection, it lasts just a second.

You could receive several injections during your visit. Other times, a vaccine consists of breathing in a mist. These inhaled vaccines are often used to prevent the seasonal flu.

What can I expect afterward?

After you receive vaccinations, mild side effects are common. You could notice temporary redness or tenderness at the injection site or mild flu-like symptoms, including a low-grade fever, fatigue, or sore throat. Call your doctor if you develop alarming symptoms or have an allergic reaction.

Your Tri Cities Urgent Care provider determines when to schedule your next series of vaccinations. Some require a series of or annual doses to be most effective.
