As we move from winter to spring, immunizations should still be an active part of your plan for good health.
Now is the time to schedule your seasonal immunizations. Whether you are an adult or considering vaccines for children, always talk to your primary care provider to identify the best plan for you.
Immunization is a global health and development success story, saving millions of lives every year. We now have vaccines to prevent more than 20 diseases, helping people of all ages live longer, healthier lives. Immunization is the foundation of the primary health care system and an indisputable human right. It’s also one of the best health investments money can buy.
Influenza, COVID-19, and Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) are the top 3 vaccines you should plan to receive well before the upcoming holidays. Also consider some of the other immunizations for adults: shingles & pneumococcal.
As we look towards winter, please consider immunizations as part of your strategy for good health. Include immunizations as part of your health plan with your primary care provider.
