What are Vaccinations?
A common misconception about vaccines is that they are only for children. However, at BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services, our team provides vaccinations for children, teens, adults, and pregnant women. While we recommend that all of our Flower Mound, Irving, and Lewisville, TX patients get the annual flu shot, there are a variety of vaccines that can help protect you against illness during all stages of life. Depending on your work, school, lifestyle, and other health conditions, the type of vaccinations you could require vary. To keep your body strong, contact clinical director Dr. Dwane Allen to schedule your family's vaccinations.
"Was surprised to see you guys offering suboxone treatment! I've been seeing Dr. Gray for about 2 years and have been suggesting that they integrate it into their services. I have been doing it for about a month now and I am definitely impressed by the results."- A.W. / Google / Oct 03, 2021
"I have been a patient at BHFS for about 6 months now and although their service was top notch, I wasn't seeing phenomenal improvement in myself until they started their suboxone treatment with me. I feel like I am finally the man I am supposed to be. Very grateful they added this addition to their clinic as not many clinics in my area provide this service."- J.H. / Google / Oct 02, 2021

What Vaccinations Do I Need?
Depending on your age and medical needs, your vaccination requirements may vary. Our team at BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services can help you decide what the best vaccinations for you are. Some of the most common vaccines include:
- Flu vaccine
- Meningococcal Conjugate (meningitis)
- HPV (human papillomavirus)
- Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis)
- Pneumococcal vaccine
- Herpes Zoster (shingles)
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.
