What is the difference between vaccines and vaccinations?

Vaccines and vaccinations are terms many may use interchangeably. Though related, they each refer to different parts of the process used to protect you from contagious diseases.


A vaccine is a preparation that contains a dead or weakened germ or a special part of a germ. 

When vaccines are administered into your body, your immune system recognizes the germ component as foreign and harmful and creates a defense mechanism against it. This process is called immunization, meaning you’re immune or protected from the disease.

Vaccines help your immune system protect you from diseases that may cause serious illnesses without you ever getting sick. 


Vaccinations refer to the administration of the vaccine by your health care provider. Most vaccines are given as an injection, but some are available as nasal sprays, pills, or liquids.

When do I need vaccinations?

You get most of the vaccinations you need during childhood, but you may need boosters or other vaccinations at other points throughout your life.

Feminine Urgicare uses the vaccination schedule from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to determine when you need vaccinations. These guidelines suggest:

  • Flu vaccine once a year
  • Up-to-date COVID-19 vaccine 
  • Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (Tdap) every 10 years
  • Hepatitis B, up to 4 doses between ages 19 and 50
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (2 to 3 doses up to age 45)
  • Varicella vaccine

Feminine Urgicare provides vaccines for COVID-19 and influenza and some of the more common vaccines like tetanus and HPV.

If you need to update your vaccinations and can’t get an appointment with your usual doctor, schedule an appointment at Feminine Urgicare.

What side effects can I expect after getting vaccinations?

You may experience some soreness, redness, and swelling at the site of your injection following your vaccinations. These side effects are normal and go away within a few days.

Some vaccines may cause a mild fever, headache, or fatigue. These are normal reactions to a vaccine and a sign your immune system is working.

Vaccinations are safe for most people. However, the team at Feminine Urgicare may recommend delaying vaccinations if you had an allergic reaction to a vaccine in the past or have a contraindicated health condition such as seizures or a severely suppressed immune system.
