Immunizations & Vaccinations

Immunizations – The Key to Staying Healthy

Guarding yourself against the threat of illness is an important step to take to preserve your health as you grow. At Park Medical Centers, we are proud to perform vaccinations for everything from pneumonia to the flu. We offer a series of immunizations at all of our offices located around the Metro Detroit region.

The Importance of Vaccinations

Vaccinations have been in the news recently as a point of controversy. While some believe that getting a shot weakens your immune system and makes your body susceptible to other illnesses, this could not be further from the truth.

A vaccine is designed to prepare your immune system for the threat of a virus or bacteria. By receiving a flu shot or other vaccination, you will teach your immune system to recognize the particular virus. While some claim that receiving a shot gave them the flu, it is often another illness caused by a separate germ.

If you have concerns about immunizations and vaccinations, we encourage you to speak to your Park Medical Centers healthcare provider at one of our offices today.
