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,

COVID-19 Testing at American Medical Centers

We have tested thousands of patients across the country for COVID-19 since we began testing in early April. Here’s the latest information on our testing services:

Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for travelling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact your local AMC.

Where is AMC testing patients for COVID-19?

We’re currently offering PCR testing to anyone interested either in the clinic or in the comfort of your home/hotel.


If you require numerous employees to be tested on the same day for an upcoming business trip, we can organise an onsite workplace testing session.

How long does it take to get back results?

Results for PCR Testing takes up to 24 hours to process. We also offer rapid testing for those requiring same-day results.

Upon request, we may provide a Covid-19 travel certificate for travel purposes, verified by a doctor to provide proof of a negative test result, at no additional cost. When required, a certified Covid-19 travel certificate can be presented to show you’re safe to fly and enter a country.
