What are Vaccines?

Vaccines are a preventive strategy that protects you from highly contagious and potentially life-threatening diseases like: Polio, Mumps, Measles, Hepatitis, Chickenpox, Meningitis, Seasonal flu strains, and Human papillomavirus (HPV). Vaccines work by introducing a weakened or inactive antigen to your body to help your immune system recognize and build up its defense against it. If you come into contact with the disease later in life, your immune system can better protect against it. HealthWell Family Health offers vaccines to protect children and adults from serious illnesses. The medical team reviews your medical history and existing health to identify which vaccines you or your child need and when.


Vaccines are your best defense against measles, the flu, and other contagious diseases. To lower your risk for complications some diseases can cause, Renew Medspa &Wellness provides a range of vaccines for children and adults.  the medical team ensure you stay up to date on vaccines and boosters, so you can enjoy a long, healthy life. They also offer resources for those who can't be vaccinated because of allergies or other health issues. Call the office in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Queens, New York, to schedule a vaccine consultation or book an appointment online today.

When do I need vaccines?

Typically, you receive several vaccines soon after birth when your immune system is still developing. There are also several vaccines you should get before you start school and throughout your childhood. Some vaccines you get as a child require boosters as you get older to keep you protected from illness. Adolescents and young adults may also benefit from vaccines that protect against HPV, a contagious virus spread through sexual contact. Renew Medspa &Wellness also offers travel vaccines that reduce your risk for yellow fever, malaria, and other diseases more common outside the United States.


What are the benefits of vaccines?

Vaccines protect you from serious illness and long-term health complications resulting from contagious diseases. Getting vaccinated not only protects you from sickness but can also protect individuals with underlying medical conditions that weaken their immune systems. Vaccines slow the spread of viruses in a community and lower risk factors for illness among those who can receive vaccines.


Before being available to the public, vaccines undergo extensive testing for safety and effectiveness. If you have any concerns about the benefits or safety of vaccines for you or your child, speak with the Renew Medspa &Wellness team before you make a decision. When you can't receive vaccines because of existing health issues or allergies, the team can provide resources to lower your risk factors for contagious diseases.
