Vaccines (Including Flu vaccine and B12) Q & A

What are vaccines?

Vaccines are recommended from the time you're born and continue throughout your adult life. The purpose of vaccines is to protect you from getting sick. 

A vaccine contains a small amount of the germs that cause the disease you’re wanting to avoid. It’s introduced to your immune system in a weakened state, which allows your immune system to recognize the disease and fight it. 

Once you get a vaccine, your immune system creates antibodies to protect you from getting  certain illnesses and diseases.

Your doctor at Healing Touch Medical can review your medical history records and talk to you about what vaccines you might need. Staying up-to-date on your vaccines is crucial to your health and also helps stop the spread of contagious diseases to others.

What vaccines do I need?

Everyone needs various types of vaccines throughout their lifetime. Common vaccines include:

  • Chickenpox
  • Tetanus
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Human papillomavirus
  • Measles
  • Polio

Talk to your doctor about all the vaccines needed to keep you and your children healthy.

Healing Touch Medical also highly recommends getting the flu vaccine every year. The flu is one of the most dangerous diseases and can cause hospitalization and, in some cases, even death. Healing Touch Medical offers the flu vaccine to help you avoid contracting the flu.

Once you get the flu vaccine, it takes about two weeks for your antibodies to develop.

What additional options besides vaccines can keep me healthy?

The team at Healing Touch Medical recommends the Vitamin B12 shot for the benefits it offers. Many people are Vitamin B12 deficient, which can cause health complications, including:

  • Vision issues
  • Memory loss
  • Anemia
  • Neuropathy
  • Damage to the nervous system
  • Sensation of pins and needles
  • Loss of coordination

If you’re experiencing symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency, talk to your doctor at Healing Touch Medical about a plan for replenishing your body.

Why should I get Vitamin B12 injections?

Vitamins are important for your body, but often oral supplements don’t get absorbed by your body efficiently. Injections skip your digestive tract and deliver vitamins directly to your bloodstream. Vitamin B12 injections can support your:

  • Nerve cells
  • Red blood cell formation
  • DNA production
  • Energy
  • Memory
  • Bone health
  • Heart
  • Mood
  • Vision
  • Brain
  • Hair, skin, and nails
  • Weight management

Call Healing Touch Medical to schedule your vaccines, flu shot, and Vitamin B12 injections to help your body stay healthy and function at its peak performance.
