At Urgent Care of Florida, we understand that circumstances may have prevented you from staying up-to-date on you or your child’s vaccinations. Our goal is to simply help everyone get caught up. Vaccines, or immunizations, are the most powerful weapon we have in the modern world against disease.
We want to keep you and your loved ones healthy all year ’round.
Tips to Keep Kids Calm
The staff and physicians of Urgent Care of Florida are used to seeing kids who are concerned or upset about getting a shot. We know how to work quickly and efficiently so that the whole process is over before they know it.
In order to for things to go smoother, talk to your child about what is going to happen. Be upfront and honest with them! Let them know that they may feel a sharp poke, but let them know that the pain will last only for a minute or two. Remind them that these shots are vaccinations which will help them to stay healthy. Feel free to ask them what will help them to feel better at the appointment. Some kids like to sit on their parent’s lap; others like to be softly sung to. Whatever works for you and your child, we’ll try and accommodate.
You may have heard some people claiming that vaccinations are more dangerous that the diseases they’re supposed to protect from. It’s important to understand that every scientific study that looks at vaccines has proven their safety and effectiveness. Vaccines do carry very small risks, which providers will discuss with you at your appointment, but every scientific organization agrees that they are the best way to protect our children from deadly diseases like measles, mumps, and flu.
When you are looking for immunizations, Urgent Care of Florida offers both scheduled appointments and walk-in service. This provides you with the utmost efficient in having your child vaccinated. Schedule an appointment or simply walk-in — whichever is easiest for you!
