Say Yes to Vaccines

A Sensible Way to Help You and Your Family Stay Healthy

Vaccines are a safe and effective way to protect you from harmful diseases caused by a virus or bacteria. Vaccines help your immune system fight disease. Your immune system is your body’s natural defense against disease.

Vaccines save lives! For hundreds of years, vaccines have prevented suffering and death from diseases like smallpox, polio, measles, meningitis, pneumonia, tetanus, and others. It is more dangerous to get a disease than it is to get the vaccine. Protect yourself and those around you by getting vaccinated.

Let’s Talk About Vaccines

“Vaccines are probably the most important scientific or medical discovery in the past 100 years.”
– Dr. Joseph Berg, Family Medicine

Vaccines are a safe and effective way to protect you from harmful diseases. It’s more dangerous to get some diseases than to get a vaccine. Vaccines save lives! Vaccines work by showing your body’s immune system how to fight that disease.

Which Vaccines Do You Need?

Vaccines work best when they are given to you at a specific age. Some vaccines are given to babies because they prevent a disease for their entire lifetime or prevent a disease that is common in children. Vaccines given to adults prevent diseases that are more common in older people. Some vaccines are offered every year because they need to be updated or boosted to help your immune system stay strong.
