Immunization, or vaccination, helps prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. To stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and pneumonia, adults need to get their shots – just like kids do.
September is a great time to promote vaccines and remind family, friends, and coworkers to stay up to date on their shots.
How can immunizations make a difference?
We can all use this month to raise awareness about vaccines and share strategies to increase immunization rates with our community.
Here are just a few ideas:
Talk to friends and family members about how vaccines aren’t just for kids. People of all ages can get shots to protect them from serious diseases.
Encourage people in your community to get the flu vaccine every year.
Invite a doctor or nurse to speak to parents about why it’s important for all kids to get vaccinated.
It is important for children to be vaccinated when they go back to school. Thankfully, most health insurance plans cover immunizations.
The following vaccines are usually covered by health insurance:
