Immunizations, more commonly referred to as vaccines, help protect you, your family and friends, and the community from contracting and spreading vaccine-preventable diseases like seasonal flu, whooping cough, measles, shingles, pneumonia, and COVID-19. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), vaccinations not only protect us from seasonal illnesses like the flu, but they protect us in the future. Vaccinations are one of the best ways to put an end to serious side effects from certain diseases. Additionally, COVID-19 vaccines are one of many important tools to help us take control of this pandemic.
