Vaccines are medicines that “teach” your body how to defend against future infection. They’re made from killed or weakened viruses or bacteria.
There’s a lot of information available about vaccines and not all of it is true. Before making decisions about vaccination for you and your family, it’s important to get the facts.
No matter what age you are or what stage of life you are in, it is important to talk to your doctor about vaccines. Vaccines can help prevent disease in people of all ages.
