With the vaccines currently available, you have the power to protect yourself from serious diseases like shingles, pneumonia and flu.

Importance of Immunization Awareness Month

Vaccines reduce the risk of infection by working with our body’s natural defenses to create immunity to these serious diseases.

Some vaccines can be given at your primary care doctor’s office.

Other vaccines are given at your local pharmacy.

Talk with your doctor about which vaccines you may be needing.
