  • Even if you had vaccinations as a child, that doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't follow up as a young adult. Certain vaccinations are required for college.
  • Vaccination is a hot topic. Supporters reveal the enormous benefits of vaccines, however, there is a growing number of people who oppose immunization.
  • Vaccinations are a way to "teach" the immune system how to recognize and eliminate disease causing organisms. Vaccines can prevent potential deadly illnesses.
  • Certain people should not get vaccinated or should hold off before receiving a vaccine. Individuals with a compromised immune system are often advised to wait.
  • The Global Immunization Vision and Strategy (GIVS) plan is designed to control morbidity and mortality from vaccine-preventable diseases.
  • Apart from the obvious health benefits, studies have explored the additional societal benefits of vaccinations in developing countries.
  • Annual flu shots are recommended for all ages, starting at 6 months old. This has been a shift in recent years encouraging all age groups to receive the shot.
