We compiled our top FAQs to give you more information about the Immune Boost!
Q1: I am a patient of the clinic, but I have never gotten an Immune Boost before. Am I considered a new patient?
A1: No, you would be considered an existing patient, or a ‘follow-up’ patient. New patients are those who have never been to our clinic before – where we would have you fill out a new short-form intake.
Q2: Is the Immune Boost a shot or IV drip? Does every Dr. at the clinic do it?
A2: The Immune Boost is a intramuscular shot and the Dr.s who can perform this type of a service is Dr. Michael Mason-Wood and Dr. Candace Haarsma.
Q3: How often should someone get the Immune Boost?
A3: Two to three times during flu season is optimal- but a lot of patients only get it once with great results.
Q4: Is the an age restriction? Is it good for kids?
A4: There is no age restriction to the shot. There are alternatives for babies and children who do not want to take the shot, such as a drinkable version. As well, for newborns the solution can be used topically on the belly-button rather than injected or ingested.
Q5: What is in the Immune Boost?
Q6: Can you include a B-complex or B12 in the shot?
A6: Yes we can! Send us a special request by email or phone a few days before hand and we will get your customized shot ready for you. The cost for additions is typically $10.00
Q7: Are there any side effect or adverse reactions to the immune boost?
A7: It is common to experience tenderness of the arm after an injection such as possible pain, redness, swelling or a hard lump at the injection site (if these do occur, they should pass within a couple of days). Hypersensitivity reactions could happen to components of the injection, so it is always best to reveal all sensitivities to the Doctor when you come in for your shot.
