Immunizations/Vaccines Q & A

How does vaccination work?

Vaccination is usually administered as a shot and protects you from infectious diseases.

They work by introducing a small amount of the weakened organism that causes the disease into your system. While this isn’t enough to infect you, it’s enough to cause your body to create antibodies that know when and how to attack the diseases. That process is called immunization.

Common vaccinations include:

  • Diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (DTaP)
  • Polio (IPV)
  • Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
  • Chickenpox (Varicella)
  • Hepatitis A and B

While there’s a possibility you may still get a disease if you’re infected, the likelihood that it is less severe is high.

What if I don’t get vaccinated?

Not getting vaccinated can put you and everyone else around you at risk. Those who are vaccinated are protected from the disease and from spreading it. Vaccination reduces the spread of illness across immunized populations.

Vaccination offers seniors, adults, teens, and children the following benefits:

  • Protect against dangerous diseases
  • Reduce the spread of disease
  • Are more cost-effective than being treated for a disease
  • Have very low instances of side effects

Most importantly if enough people are not vaccinated, certain seemingly extinct diseases, such as measles, may become more widespread.

Because it’s possible to contract different diseases depending on where you are in the world, you may need additional vaccinations before travel. Schedule an appointment at Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC before leaving the country to ensure you’re not at risk.

Is vaccination safe?

Vaccination is safe and generally well-tolerated by most people. It is an incredibly effective method to safeguard your health.

Vaccines are held to the highest standard of safety. They aren't legalized until they undergo years of study. Even after becoming legal, they're constantly monitored for efficacy. In fact, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) constantly works to make vaccinations even safer.

In most cases, someone who gets a vaccine experiences no side effects. However, some people can experience fever or soreness at the injection site. It’s also possible, though unlikely, to have an allergic reaction to a vaccine.
