Stay Healthy With Critical Vaccinations
A vaccine is used to stimulate a person’s immune system to produce immunity to a specific disease, protecting the person from that disease. Vaccines are usually administered through needle injections, but can also be administered by mouth or sprayed into the nose. At RWJBarnabas Renaissance we offer our patients protection from diseases with administration of vaccines.
List of Vaccines We Offer:
- Flu Shot

A vaccine stimulates your immune system to produce antibodies, exactly like it would if you were exposed to the disease. After getting vaccinated at our office, you will develop immunity to that disease, without having to get the disease first. This is what makes vaccines such powerful medicine. Unlike most medicines, which treat or cure diseases, vaccines prevent them.
Vaccination is the act of introducing a vaccine into the body to produce immunity to a specific disease.
