Going into your local Raleigh urgent care for immunizations is one of the easiest ways to fight preventable contagious diseases. Getting vaccinated at our Raleigh area Rx Urgent Cares is a fairly safe treatment for contagious diseases and viruses, however, they can come with some risks. It is important to be informed on what diseases or viruses certain vaccines protect against. It is also important to know which vaccine you need and the side effects of it.
Patients should review the CDC website to determine which vaccines they need prior to coming to RX Urgent Care. After looking over the CDC website, school vaccination requirements or any other vaccination requirement, decide which vaccinations you need and come with a list to make sure you are getting the vaccines you need.

At Rx Urgent Care in Raleigh, each travel vaccination visit is with a Physician Assistant who will go over what is recommended by CDC guidelines. Your PA will reconcile that against vaccinations you have already had. Your office visit will be covered by insurance, however, typically you will have to pay for the travel vaccinations due to them not being required.
