Vaccinations FAQs

Should I get the flu vaccine?

You already know how easily the flu can spread from person to person, especially in enclosed spaces like school, work, and home. But did you also know that it's possible to pass on the flu virus even when you don't feel sick? Even if you're an adult in good health, the flu vaccine is a safe way to ensure your health this year.

How can I prepare for a vaccine?

There's no specific way to prepare for a vaccine at BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services. When you come in for your appointment, you'll simply answer a few questions about your health history to make sure certain vaccines are right for you. We offer a variety of vaccines and focus on individualized care to meet your specific needs.

What are the side effects of a vaccine?

Since vaccines are only meant to boost your immune system and protect it from a specific illness, there shouldn't be any side effects. However, there can be mild reactions such as redness, soreness, or swelling at the injection site in some patients. If you experience any unusual symptoms after your vaccine, please call our office in Lewisville, TX.
