National Immunization Awareness Month

Did you know vaccinations aren’t just for children? They are a vital part of health maintenance at every age. They’re especially important for adults planning to travel, or anyone with chronic medical conditions. Vaccines are an effective way to decrease the risk of illnesses in yourself, your close contacts, and in your community. Vaccination is a proven way to reduce the rate of diseases including measles, flu, chickenpox and pneumonia. The HPV vaccine can even protect against viruses that lead to cervical cancer. At your next checkup make sure to ask your doctor about vaccines, and see which would be best for you.
