Are Vaccines Safe? - American Medical Centers (Lviv)

Are Vaccines Safe?

Statistics show that 95 out of 100 children will not fall sick even being in direct contact with an infection if they had been vaccinated on time.

Still, often parents refuse recommended vaccinations and consider them dangerous or are concerned about side-effects or reactions such as:

  • fever
  • fatigue
  • pain
  • swelling
  • redness
  • rash

If there is a reaction to a vaccination, it is likely to last 1 to 2 days, without requiring additional treatment.  

All said, however, It is important to understand that infectious diseases can lead to more serious consequences than temporary reactions. For instance, paralysis can be developed along with poliomyelitis. Measles, for instance, may cause encephalitis and blindness, while some diseases can even end in death.

Vaccines are safe and will reliably protect a child from infectious diseases and their possible consequences. At AMC Lviv we provide vaccines according to American / European protocols or patient-preferred immunization schedule. For more information please contact AMC Lviv anytime at +380 322 537 000,

Think You Have COVID-19? We Are Testing.

How does it work?

  • Call your local AMC and consult with one of our physicians. The care provider will determine which diagnostic fits best for you – COVID-19 PCR or Antibody testing.
  • Request an appointment for COVID-19 testing either in clinic or at your place.
  • Results for PCR testing may take up to 24 hours to process while results for Antibody testing are ready within 15 minutes.

How PCR and Antibody Testing differ from each other?

  • The PCR test takes a swab from the back of the nose and throat and looks for the presence of the virus itself.
  • The Antibody testing looks at a blood sample for antibodies generated in the body in response to the virus, showing whether or not the person tested has been exposed to it in the past.
Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for traveling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact AMC Lviv.
*During busy lab times, PCR Testing may take up to 48 hours.
