What are vaccinations?

Are vaccinations right for me?

The Colorado Springs Family Practice team reviews your medical and vaccination history with you to determine if you’re a candidate for vaccinations and which are best for you. They work with you to decide which vaccines match your needs. You might follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines or develop a personalized vaccine schedule.

What should I expect when getting a vaccine?

You could receive vaccinations during an annual wellness checkup or a sick visit. When getting vaccines at Colorado Springs Family Practice, you relax on a comfortable exam table or in a chair. You either breathe in a nasal mist or receive an injection. While you may feel a slight pinch during each injection, it lasts just a second or two.

What happens after receiving vaccinations? 

After getting vaccinated at Colorado Springs Family Practice, you can resume normal activities immediately. However, you can expect some redness or tenderness at each injection site. 

Some vaccinations also cause you to feel tired or develop a low-grade fever, muscle aches, or other mild flu-like symptoms. Call the Colorado Springs Family Practice office if your vaccine side effects turn severe.

Many types of vaccinations require more than one dosage, or yearly doses, to fully protect you against certain illnesses. Your Colorado Springs Family Practice provider lets you know when to schedule your next vaccines.
