Vaccines at ProTelix Health Clinic are injections or mists you breathe in that often contain live viruses, dead viruses, or other materials that boost your body’s immunity to certain diseases and illnesses.

The specific vaccines you’re a good match for depends on your vaccination history, lifestyle, health, age, and preferences.

Which vaccines are best for me?

Experts at ProTelix Health Clinic personalize a vaccination schedule that’s best for you and your family. They discuss your medical and vaccination history, check your vital signs, and complete a physical examination.

You and your ProTelix Health Clinic provider work together to find a vaccine regimen that’s best for you, and one you feel comfortable with. They let you know what to expect and review the pros and cons of each vaccine to help you make an informed decision. 

What happens during vaccine administration?

When getting a vaccine, you relax in a comfortable chair while your specialist injects a vaccination into your body using a very fine needle. In some cases, you may inhale a mist instead. The procedure is fast and virtually painless, and there’s no downtime afterward. It’s convenient to get vaccinated before or after work, or even during your lunch break.

What should I expect after getting vaccinated?

You may experience temporary side effects after receiving vaccines. Examples include redness, tenderness, or swelling at the injection site, mild fever, fatigue, muscle aches, or other flu-like symptoms.

Depending on the type of vaccine you receive, you might need to take a day off from work or school to rest. Some vaccines require multiple injections spaced apart over time, or annual injections, to provide the most effective results.
