Our Shot 219

When was the last time you received a vaccine?

You may not realize you need vaccines throughout your adult life to stay healthy and protect yourself, and your loved ones, from serious illness.

Vaccines are safe and effective at preventing serious diseases.

Vaccines lower the chance of getting sick. Vaccines work with your body’s natural defenses to lower the chances of getting certain diseases as well as suffering complications from these diseases.

Vaccines lower your chance of spreading certain diseases. There are many things you want to pass on to your loved ones; a vaccine preventable disease is not one of them. Infants, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems (like those undergoing cancer treatment) are especially vulnerable to vaccine preventable diseases.

Vaccines are one of the safest ways to protect your health. Vaccine side effects are usually mild and go away on their own. Sever side effects are very rare and uncommon.


Adults can get vaccines at doctors’ offices, pharmacies, community health clinics, health departments, and other locations. Need help finding a location? Call 211.
