Diseases & Vaccines
Vaccine-preventable diseases are at an all time low, but this doesn't mean they have disappeared. Many viruses and bacteria are still circulating. This is why it is important for everyone to receive all the recommended immunizations on time.
Vaccines help your body recognize and fight these germs and protect you each time you come in contact with someone who is sick with any of these diseases.
