Recent patient review

It doesn't get any better than this folks. I recently moved from Ohio. I hadn't found a PCP yet and contracted a head and chest cold. By a stroke of luck, I happened to find Alamo Urgent Care. Then, the next month, I got the flu. Nurse Practioner Courtley got me back on my feet in 5 day!!! Most recently, I had what could have been a DVT. Courtney went way over and above the call of duty. My insurance had just assigned me a PCP that DIDN'T exists. Courtney spent her time coordinating with the facility doctor, collaborated with a specialist, and got a case working going so I could be seen by a PCP the very next day! I didn't expect this. I didn't even know she was working behind the scenes on my health care. Wow! You just don't find service, commitment, and caring like this in Ohio. In my humble opinion, the staff and facility at Marbach road set a very high bar for others to follow. While I know there are many Urgent Care facilities in San Antonio, to me, there IS only one. The wait time is almost non-existent. They are fast, efficient, caring, and the location is convenient and CLEAN! With convenient hours, For me and my family. This is the one!

Recent patient review

First time at an urgent care facility. Great experience. Made two appointments for my husband and myself. Raul- registrar was friendly and professional. Technician was efficient and very friendly and made giving our medical info easy. Provider, Vincent Walsh APRN,NP was efficient, has a caring and a very funny bedside manner and listened carefully to our needs. He explained what he would do for us at the appointment and prescribed meds with directions for home care. Delighted with our experience at this Medpost.

If childhood vaccination is missed, individuals ages 13 and older should get two doses at least 28 days apart. San Antonio requires children to be vaccinated or provide evidence of immunity before entering public school. Individuals who have come into contact with a case of the chickenpox should seek vaccination within three to five days of being exposed, or as soon as possible. Individuals who are allergic to gelatin or the antibiotic neomycin, pregnant or ill should consult with their doctor before seeking a vaccine.

  • Are video visits available with vaccination clinics in San Antonio?

    While vaccines cannot be administered over video, your doctor can evaluate and advise you or your child from your home in San Antonio. They can discuss your travel plans and previous immunization records, recommend and order necessary vaccinations, and book vaccination appointments via telemedicine.

    Without insurance, a dose of chickenpox vaccine can range anywhere from $125 to $175. Book a consultation with a doctor in San Antonio today to get more details on chickenpox vaccine costs.

San Antonio Chickenpox Vaccine

The varicella vaccine, sometimes known as the chickenpox vaccine, can help you avoid contracting the disease. By understanding more about what this immunization does and who should get it, you can make an informed health care decision for yourself and your family.

Chickenpox vaccination: what everyone should know

Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus. Chickenpox is characterized by an itchy, blister-like rash that appears first on the chest, back, and face before spreading to the rest of the body, according to the CDC. Other symptoms include fever and fatigue.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, two doses of the chickenpox vaccine are around 90% effective in preventing chickenpox, which means you could still get the disease after being vaccinated. Children, adolescents, and adults who have never had chickenpox or been inoculated against it should get this vaccination.

Who needs the chickenpox vaccine?

According to the CDC, children, teens, and adults should receive two doses of the chickenpox vaccine.
Children between the ages of 12 and 15 should receive the first dose of the chickenpox vaccine, and children between the ages of four and six should receive the second dose. Children can take the second dose at a younger age if it is given at least three months after the first, according to the CDC.

Those aged 13 and up who have never had chickenpox or been vaccinated should get two doses spaced by at least 28 days. According to the CDC, the chickenpox vaccine is especially important for healthcare workers, teachers, college students, nursing home patients, and international travelers.
Consult your doctor to see if you need the chickenpox vaccine based on your current health situation.

Who should not get the chickenpox vaccine?

You don't need the vaccine if you show evidence of immunity against chickenpox, according to the CDC. Immunity is demonstrated, among other things, by being born in the United States before 1980 and having a confirmed diagnosis of chickenpox.

According to the CDC, the following people should not obtain the chickenpox vaccine:

  • Those who have suffered a life-threatening reaction to the chickenpox vaccine or any of its components.
  • Those who are moderately or severely ill when their chickenpox immunization appointment is scheduled.
  • Women who are expecting children.

Certain patients should see their doctors before getting the chickenpox vaccine. According to the CDC, this includes:

  • Those who have an illness of the immune system, such as HIV or AIDS.
  • Those who have cancer or are being treated for cancer with radiation or medicines.
  • Those who have received a blood transfusion recently.

Two types of chickenpox vaccines

Two types of chickenpox vaccines are now approved for use in the United States. The vaccines' brand names, according to the CDC, are Varivax® and ProQuad®.

Varivax®

Varivax® contains only the chickenpox vaccination. Adults, teenagers, and children aged 12 months and up are the only ones who can get this vaccine.

ProQuad®

ProQuad® is a vaccine that includes the chickenpox vaccine as well as immunizations for measles, mumps, and rubella. This vaccination is only approved for children ages 12 months to 12 years, according to the CDC.

Getting vaccinated after you are exposed to chickenpox

If you have been exposed to chickenpox, the CDC recommends getting vaccinated within three to five days after contact. It goes on to state that you should get two doses of the vaccine even if you've been exposed for more than five days. Each of these dosages should be separated by at least 28 days.

Childcare and school chickenpox vaccine requirements

If you have been exposed to chickenpox, the CDC recommends getting vaccinated within three to five days after contact. It goes on to state that you should get two doses of the vaccine even if you've been exposed for more than five days. Each of these dosages should be separated by at least 28 days.

Your healthcare practitioner can discuss whether or not your children should get the chickenpox vaccine with you in greater detail based on your family's religious and philosophical beliefs, as well as their medical history.

How can parents pay for the chickenpox vaccine?

The chickenpox vaccination is covered by most health insurance policies, according to the CDC. If your health insurance plan does not cover the cost of your children's chickenpox immunization, the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program may be able to help. The CDC recommends contacting VFC directly to see if you're qualified for financial aid through this program.
