As a child, you may have been vaccinated against certain common and even potentially deadly diseases. However, not only does the protection offered by those vaccinations sometimes wear off, but adults face other unique health conditions that require immunizations.
At Life Family Clinic, our physicians are extremely conscious about the unique health challenges faced by our women patients, and the general female population.
With various strands of the human papillomaviruses (HPV) constantly threatening the health and wellbeing of women, our physicians are able to administer Cervarix or Gardasil vaccinations to immunise women against the risk of cervical cancer, including warding off HPV types 16, 18, 6 and 11.
Hepatitis A and B are common conditions that can impact the health and wellbeing of many adults. Once infected, patients can be susceptible to many other ancillary diseases, and may have to drastically modify their lifestyles.
Our trained physicians administer Twinrix, a vaccination that packs the power of two earlier vaccines used to immunize against separate strands of Hepatitis viruses – A and B. We’ll ensure that you receive the full treatment – comprising of 3 doses, 3-months apart – in a clinically safe and caring environment.
If you are travelling to relatively under-developed parts of the world, you may be in danger of contracting Hepatitis A – a deadly liver disease caused by the HAV virus. It is often contracted when patients ingest food or drink covered in fecal matter, or come into contact with fluids from a HAV-infected person.
In large parts of the globe, there may be no medical facilities that are suitably equipped to deal with this condition, leaving you at risk of having your illness progress without medical attention.
Why not drop by Life Family Clinic and consult with one of our qualified physicians to find out if the Havrix vaccination is appropriate for you. It is the best way to prevent you from becoming victim of this deadly disease.
