Immunization is integral for not only your health but for the health of all those around you. Getting vaccinated prepares the immune system against some of the most serious infections. Durham’s vaccination is comprehensive, and most people are eligible to be vaccinated for free.
If you are planning on travelling overseas, vaccinations may be required at the port of entry. Getting vaccinated is also a good way to protect yourself from infections in unknown areas. Routine vaccines for all ages have been a regular practice at Central Pickering Urgent Care since its opening.
Vaccination is usually not complete with just one shot. Two or three booster injections are required to achieve the full protection offered by the vaccine. It is vital that you receive vaccinations according to the schedule determined by your doctor. We schedule appointments to ensure convenient vaccination. Appointments are not needed for most common vaccines.
Vaccines have been essential for curbing the transmission of serious illnesses in children and adults. Over 200 years, vaccines have protected communities from disease.

Durham has a comprehensive vaccination program for children and adults. You are encouraged to get vaccinated even if you are healthy, as the vaccine makes your immune system more resistant to disease. Durham provides routine vaccinations for babies, children, and adults free of charge.
Without vaccines, you can fall ill or die. Vaccination also protects those around you. It reduces the risk of transmitting the disease to vulnerable people such as the elderly, children, and people with compromised immune systems. Some of the most easily transmissible diseases, such as measles and chickenpox, have been controlled through vaccination.
Schedule a virtual visit at Urgent Care Durham. There is a regular flow of patients coming in for their weekly, biweekly, or monthly allergy or b12 injections. Many vaccines are also done as part of our private vaccine program.
The physician or nurse practitioner on duty would send a prescription to the pharmacy of the patient’s choice. This would generally be done after an initial virtual visit. The patient would pick up the vaccine and bring it to our clinic for injection to be done.
If this is your or your child’s first vaccination, we will provide the yellow immunization card. Please carry the card with you every time you or your child receives a vaccination shot.
