Vaccines help kick-start your body’s natural protective mechanisms. Vaccines work by introducing a small amount of an antigen that resembles a disease into your body in a weakened or dead form. Your body defends itself from this intruder by creating antibodies against the real disease. When you encounter the disease in the real world your body is ready to protect itself. Some antibodies stay with you for a lifetime; others fade with time. A simple blood test (serum titer) can indicate whether or not you need a booster for one of your vaccines or immunizations.
Our physicians will take the time to answer all your questions about vaccines so you can make the right decision for you and your family.
