What is the purpose of getting a Vaccine?

Vaccines are meant to protect us against preventable diseases that are either contagious, deadly, or both. By getting vaccinated against preventable diseases, the likelihood of severe illness, hospitalizations, and even death are dramatically decreased. Common preventable diseases that vaccines work against include the Flu, Chicken Pox, Shingles, Tetanus, Pneumonia, Meningitis, and many more! 

What you should know

Our platform guides pharmacists to look at the answers you provide via the Scripted self-assessment questions to decide if you are eligible to receive a vaccine that they can administer appropriately.

We use evidence-based guidelines and protocols to ask you the right questions that will assess whether it’s safe for your pharmacist to administer your vaccine or if you should be referred to a doctor, nurse, or specialist.

Vaccines work by introducing your body to and allowing it to emulate a given infection. This allows your body to start producing some of the key players in your immune system like antibodies and lymphocytes in order to fight the infection off. At this point in the process, you may feel like you have a cold, or you may notice other signs and symptoms of your immune system doing its job. Over time your immune system learns to remember the imitated infection via “memory” lymphocytes produced so that if you are exposed to the real infection later down the line your body knows exactly what to do to fight it off.

Myth: Vaccines will make you sick...

Truth:  This is false. Vaccines are safe to use and only cause mild symptoms (i.e. cold like symptoms or a mild fever) as a result of the immune response your body has due to the vaccine itself. Even with live vaccines, no component of the vaccination can give someone the disease that is trying to be prevented itself. 

 

Myth: Vaccines cause Autism...

Truth: Vaccines do not cause autism. This idea came up after a discredited study in 1997 done by British Surgeon Andrew Wakefield where it was claimed that autism can occur after the MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) Vaccine. This study was riddled with errors and ethical issues that have proven the study false and also caused Andrew Wakefield to be stripped of his medical license. Since then numerous studies have been done on the connection between vaccines and Autism, all of which have shown no correlation. 

 

Myth: Vaccines are made up of things that are not safe...

Truth: Vaccines undergo an FDA approval process that ensures they are safe for use. Components of vaccines sometimes can include Aluminum, Mercury, or Formaldehyde which can be harmful in large quantities. The amount of these components in vaccines are at such low levels that there has not been any evidence to say that they are harmful.

 

Myths: It's not important to get vaccines because preventable disease rates are low...

Truth: Preventable disease transmission rates are so low due to a phenomenon known as Herd Immunity. Herd Immunity is defined as the decreased spread of disease due to a high rate of immunity to that disease in the general population. Herd immunity is only attainable if the majority of a given population is immune to a certain disease, this goes hand in hand with vaccinations. If too many people are not vaccinated within a given population, herd immunity is not possible.

Can I be seen using Scripted for my Vaccine?

Yes! Scripted offers a wide range of vaccines including the Flu shot (influenza), Zoster (shingles), Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Pneumococcal (pneumonia), TdaP and Td,  (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis, or tetanus alone), Meningococcal (meningitis), and the COVID-19 vaccine.

Scripted Available Vaccines include:

  • COVID-19 – An extremely contagious viral disease that widely varies in symptoms. Symptoms that may be present include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, loss of taste and/or smell, fatigue, and headache. There are three vaccines available to help drastically decrease the chances of contracting this infectious disease or greatly lessen the severity of it if still contracted.

    • Influenza (Flu) – Caused by the influenza virus, the flu is an extremely contagious disease  be seen include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, loss of taste and/or smell, fatigue, and headache. There are 3 vaccines available to help drastically decrease the chances of contracting this infectious disease or greatly lessen the severity of it if characterized by fever, muscle pain, fatigue, headache, chills, runny nose, sore throat, and cough. This infection is transmitted via droplets.  By getting the flu shot annually one can drastically decrease their chances of contracting this infectious disease or greatly lessen the severity of the flu if they still get it.

    • Zoster (Shingles) – This is a viral disease characterized by blisters and painful rashes. In addition to this people can experience muscle weakness, body aches, fever, chills, itching, and fatigue. This disease is spread through direct contact; getting vaccinated against this is recommended for most people ages 50 and up in order to help prevent the spread and transmission of shingles.

    • Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – This viral disease usually affects moist areas of the body and the skin. Signs of a viral HPV infection include warts that can be found on the genitals, as well as hands and feet or other parts of the body. Transmitted through direct contact this disease may be prevented by a vaccination

    • Pneumococcal (Pneumonia) – Pneumonia is an infection that is seen in the air sacs of the lungs. This infection can infect only one lung, or both at the same time. Symptoms include fever, chills, difficulty breathing, a severe cough, body pain, chest pain while coughing, etc. This condition is spread via respiratory droplets and may be prevented by a vaccination.

    • TdaP and Td,  (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis, or Tetanus alone) – Tetanus is a bacterial infection also known as lockjaw. It causes painful muscle contractions in the neck and jaw and may also be characterized by jerking, staring, difficulty swallowing, and painful spasms. Diphtheria is a bacterial infection of the nose and throat that has symptoms including ulcers or throat lining covered in a thick gray membrane, fever, pain, swelling, sore throat, and coughing. Pertussis (whooping cough) is an infection of the airway that starts off similar to a common cold, but then progresses into much worse symptoms like an uncontrolled cough that can lead to vomiting, fatigue, accumulation of mucus in the throat, and a high pitched tone of breathing. All 3 conditions can be transmitted via indirect contact, and all 3 conditions may be preventable with a single vaccination.

    • Meningococcal (meningitis) – Meningitis is a bacterial infection that attacks the lining of the brain. Symptoms include a stiff neck, fever, headache, and confusion. Meningitis is spread via indirect contact and can potentially be prevented via vaccination.
