Immunization: A Powerful Way to Protect Your Health

Vaccinations are one of the greatest medical achievements in modern science because they prevent the spread of disease and save lives!

Vaccines contain antigens, or killed or weakened germ particles that cause disease and enable the body to produce antibodies to provide or boost immunity. Through vaccinations, we can improve immunity or become resistant to these diseases without having to suffer from them. And remember, vaccines are not just for children!

Why Should I or my Child Get Vaccinated?

  • Vaccines protect you from deadly or debilitating diseases without having to experience them.   Did you know we are within a few years of eradicating the polio virus from the earth?
  • Vaccinations are safe and scientific advancements continue to increase their safety over time.
  • Immunizations do not cause autism. Numerous clinical studies have disproved the idea that vaccinations can cause autism.
  • Side effects are low compared to the full effect of obtaining the disease!
  • They prevent the spread of disease to others. Smallpox has been eradicated. The flu has killed millions in prior pandemics.

Diseases Prevented from Vaccines

Many diseases that used to be common around the world are now preventable through vaccinations, including the following: Polio, Measles, Diphtheria, Rubella, Mumps, Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Rotavirus, Pneumonia, and coming into the season in a few months – flu.

Over the years, vaccinations have prevented numerous diseases and saved millions of lives. And, don’t think vaccines are only for children! The elderly and pregnant women are at high risk for preventable diseases also! Immunization through vaccines is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your child!
