While a shot can seem scary, the diseases that immunizations protect against are a lot worse. Thanks to vaccinations, life-threatening conditions like polio, diphtheria, hepatitis B and others are much less common than they used to be.
Getting the recommended vaccines not only helps protect you or your loved one, it also helps protect the community. When as many people as possible have the proper immunizations, it helps protect the general population from the spread of deadly disease.
Most are aware that certain childhood immunizations are required before children can enter public schools. But what about teens and adults? Vaccines may be required or recommended based on certain risk factors, where you are employed or other factors.
