The Importance of Vaccinations
Vaccinations are an important part of public health. They prevent the spread of contagious, dangerous, and deadly diseases, and save millions of lives. These include measles, polio, mumps, chicken pox, whooping cough, diphtheria, and HPV.
Is It COVID or the Flu?
COVID-19 and the flu are both caused by viruses, but while the two illnesses share many similarities, there are some differences. So, how do you differentiate between seasonal influenza or COVID-19?
COVID Vaccines for Younger Children: What Parents Need to Know
The vaccine will reduce the need for future school closures, disruptions, and quarantine times. It will also allow sports, after-school and other school-based activities to happen without the risk and anxiety connected to the virus.
Make sure your loved ones know vaccinations aren’t just for kids! To keep our immune system strong (& protect those around us), some vaccines are needed on a regular basis. Spread the word to help others ensure they’re up to date on theirs.
Don’t let friends and family get discouraged if they’re not on track with their vaccination schedule! While certain vaccinations are recommended at different points in life, reassure them it’s never too late for them to catch up.
Send the message that staying on top of vaccinations helps our immune systems build the antibodies we need to fight off illness, protecting more than just ourselves.
Share this with others looking to do their part in building the immunity of their community.
Arm your loved ones with their best defense by encouraging them to stay up to date on their vaccinations.
