Vaccines & Immunizations: Protecting Health, Building Immunity

At MWH, we prioritize proactive healthcare through comprehensive vaccination and immunization services. By participating in annual wellness exams and staying up-to-date with recommended vaccines, you can ensure better health outcomes both in the short and long term.

Why Get Vaccinated?

Vaccines are powerful tools for preventing or reducing the severity of infectious diseases. By stimulating the immune system to create antibodies, vaccines teach the body how to fight off specific pathogens effectively. They can be used both prophylactically, to prevent diseases, and therapeutically, to combat existing infections.

Vaccines Offered Incudes:

  • Tdap: Protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis. Recommended for adults every 10 years.
  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella): Guards against measles, mumps, and rubella simultaneously.
  • Influenza (Flu Shot):Annual vaccination recommended to prevent seasonal influenza outbreaks.
  • Hepatitis A and B: Prevents inflammation of the liver caused by hepatitis viruses.
  • Polio: Used to prevent poliomyelitis, a life-threatening disease caused by poliovirus.
  • Varicella (Chickenpox): Protects against chickenpox, caused by the varicella zoster virus.
  • TB Skin Test: Screens for tuberculosis, an infectious disease of the lungs.

What is Immunization?

While vaccination refers to administering a vaccine to produce immunity, immunization is the broader process of becoming immune to a specific infectious disease. This can occur through vaccination or natural infection, where the body develops immunity through normal immune responses.

At MWH, our healthcare professionals are dedicated to guiding you through the immunization process, ensuring you and your loved ones receive optimal protection against infectious diseases.
