Providing All Standard Immunizations
Count on the medical staff at Brookwood Baptist Health to help prevent as many serious illnesses and diseases as possible. While we may not be able to stop the common cold, you can protect yourself and your children from diphtheria, tetanus, and other conditions with our immunizations in Birmingham, Alabama.
While some people may think vaccinations last a lifetime, there are several that need boosters, such as flu shots, on a regular basis, and others that are only meant for adults. Our shots are timed according to a specific CDC-approved immunization schedule, and we’ll let you know which schedule is appropriate for your age group. Each schedule has been researched and shown to be the most effective in keeping you and your family healthy in the long run.
Over the course of the first six years of a patient’s life, he or she will usually receive a total of 10 vaccines. Teenagers and adults should have received these immunizations, but if you haven’t yet, they will be effective for you as well. All of these shots protect against 14 different conditions, including the following:
- Hepatitis A and B
- Influenza (Flu)
- Pneumococcal Disease
Keeping the Community Healthy with Vaccinations
Do your part to not only keep your family safe, but to prevent the spread of diseases throughout the community. Immunizations are an effective form of preventative care, but many families don’t take advantage of these services for various reasons. This is why getting vaccinated is doubly important. Getting sick is not fun, but you don’t want to spread that sickness to your neighbors, friends, or family members who can’t or won’t get vaccinated. By getting your shots, you limit the spread of any disease so it doesn’t affect you or your loved ones.
Bring the Family in for Your Annual Flu Shots
Vaccines are safe for patients of all ages, with very few exceptions. They have been heavily researched and study after study has proven that immunizations are effective at stopping diseases without harming the patient. If you have any concerns about vaccines, please speak with our doctors to have them addressed.
Vaccines for School Enrollment Available
Visit our primary care physicians to make sure you can fight off the flu year after year. If you don’t currently get regular flu shots but don’t suffer from the sickness, just remember that it’s a virus that’s constantly evolving. So the sickness you avoided last year is not the same that you’ll face this flu season. Fortunately, medical scientists track the virus and stay ahead of the curve when it comes to flu shots.
