Protecting Your Health in Monterey, San Benito, Santa Cruz, Merced counties and in Yuma, AZ
While treatments for diseases have drastically advanced thanks to modern science and research, the best way to combat crucial health issues is to prevent them altogether. Immunizations, or vaccinations and vaccines, have made great progress in protecting people from serious threats of epidemics.
At Pinnacle Healthcare, we offer vaccinations without the hassle of waiting weeks until an appointment is available. If you need immunizations or simply want to double-check and verify that you are up to date with the necessary vaccinations, we accept walk-ins and same-day appointments.

How Immunizations Work
Getting a vaccination involves injecting a tiny dosage of the weakened or sometimes dead virus. Once the body detects the weakened virus, it stimulates your immune system to create antibodies that can determine how to effectively kill the virus and keep it in your immune system’s memory for future invasions of the disease or virus that may occur.
To help keep yourself as well as your community safe from preventable diseases, come in to double-check your immunization history to determine whether you need to catch up on certain vaccinations or whether you need a booster shot.
