Dr. Charles Armstrong and Dr. Margaret Hart offer vaccines recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), such as pneumonia, shingles, flu, and COVID-19, for individuals in Chandler, AZ, who are 18 years or older. If you would like to strengthen your immune system and get a vaccination, contact Immaculate Heart of Mary Family Health Center to schedule an appointment.

What Are the Benefits of Adult Vaccines?

Some of the primary benefits of adult vaccines include:

  • Help prevent serious illnesses
  • Reduce the risk of hospitalization

How Do Adult Vaccines Work?

Vaccines work by introducing a small amount of an antigen into the body to trigger a response from the immune system, which allows antibodies to be formed. Our staff can help you decide which vaccinations you need, as they may vary from person to person, depending on age and a number of other factors.
