The Difference Between Vaccinations and Immunizations
Vaccinations and immunizations have a few differences, but overall, are very similar. Vaccinations are released into your body at an injection site, stimulating the immune system and protection mode. Immunizations are a bit different by building up immunity in the body to the infectious disease or virus. Each will help protect and prevent infectious illnesses.
What Vaccinations or Immunizations Are Important?
There are several vaccinations and immunizations that are important. Most of us receive these vaccinations during childhood.
The Flu (Influenza)
Whooping Cough (Pertussis)
The COVID-19 vaccine is free and available to those who are unvaccinated or qualify for the booster shot. It is recommended to receive the vaccine to help prevent the illness caused by COVID-19.
Flu Shot Vaccination
The Influenza vaccination, or flu shot, is also encouraged for our customers. The flu shot differs from the COVID-19 vaccine and will help prevent the illness caused by Influenza.
