Vaccinations & Immunizations
What are Vaccines and Immunizations for Children?
What are vaccines, and what does it mean to get immunizations for your children? Immunization is the process of becoming immune to a disease, which can be synonymous to the very act of getting vaccinated. Vaccines consist of tiny amounts of weak or dead germs that can cause disease — for example, viruses, bacteria, or toxins. When we introduce these germs through a vaccine, it prepares your child’s body to effectively fight the disease quickly and prevent them from getting sick or worse. Call our San Antonio clinic today, and we can answer any questions!

What Vaccines Can Do for You and San Antonio?
When you get a pediatrician to provide your child with the vaccinations that they need, you aren’t just helping your family. Vaccinations protect everyone that you care about. When San Antonio residents get vaccinated, they prevent a disease from spreading to others in their community. This includes infants, who are too young to get vaccines, pregnant women, and the elderly. The best thing to do is to find a pediatrician in San Antonio that specializes in providing children with the vaccines that they need — like our Pediatric Wellness Center.
