Why Are Vaccines Important?

Dr. Esmilkrys B. Ramirez and Dr. Carlos Mella-Picel are skilled and experienced primary care providers. As the leading practitioners at Health Direction Medical Center, they can work with you during a scheduled visit to determine whether you are in need of vaccines and to discuss the benefits of each. Whether your vaccinations are needed for school requirements, specific health conditions, or your lifestyle, schedule a visit at one of our Chicago, IL facilities to discuss your needs with our team.
