Why Are Vaccines Important?

Getting vaccinated against preventable diseases is safe and works well to protect your health, as well as the health of your family and community.

Routine vaccines can:

  • Lower your chance of getting sick
  • Lower your chance of hospitalization or death
  • Make you less likely to spread disease to your family and friends
  • Protect those who are at high risk of getting very sick, such as children, older adults, and people with serious health conditions
  • Help keep yourself, your family, and your community healthy

By getting vaccinated, you can protect yourself and help your family and your community be safer and healthier.
