Vaccinations

Vaccinations

There are many immunizations available for a wide variety of illnesses and diseases. At Clear Choice Emergency Room, we offer both the Tetanus Shot and the Pneumococcal Vaccine.

TETANUS SHOT

Tetanus is an infection that produces toxins that affect the nervous system, causing severe muscle stiffness. The bacteria usually enters the body through a break in the skin, such as a cut or scratch.

Usually caused by a nail or other sharp metal object, the symptoms of an infection include:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Tightness in the neck, jaw, arms, legs and abdomen
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • High fever
  • Sweating
  • Heart palpitations
  • High blood pressure

If you experience any of these symptoms after an injury, visit Clear Choice ER to receive a Tetanus booster. More than likely, when you were a child, you received the Tetanus vaccine, however, it’s protection weakens over time. So whether you’re concerned about a recent injury, or you’re just due for a booster, visit Clear choice ER and we’ll take care of you right away.

PNEUMOCOCCAL VACCINE

Many adults are at risk for pneumococcal disease, a serious and sometimes deadly disease caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria. The best way to protect yourself is by making sure you are up to date with your pneumococcal vaccine.

If you or someone in your family requires either of these two vaccines, Clear Choice ER offers both vaccines 7 days a week, 365 days a year with little to no wait time. Visit with one of our healthcare providers who will assess your current condition and review any immunization records you may have. At Clear Choice, our immunizations are convenient and affordable.
