August is National Immunization Awareness Month!

Immunization

Immunizations are a vital tool for preventing dangerous diseases around the world. Vaccinations are the best way to prevent these harmful diseases and keep yourself and those around you safe. National Immunization Awareness Month is a great time to remind friends, family, coworkers, and others around you to keep up to date on their shots. Several common vaccinations require booster shots after a number of years. Speak with your primary doctor to be sure you are up to date. Vaccinations are not just for children, they are a great benefit to people of all ages and it is never too late to get vaccinated.
