Why Do We Need Vaccinations?

Vaccinations help the body’s immune system do its work by developing protection against future infections, as if we were exposed to the natural disease. The result is a stronger immune system, and the good news is, with vaccines, you don’t have to get sick to be protected. 

An immunized population also helps protect those who are not able to get vaccinations.  Read more about how immunizations protect everyone.
