Vaccinations

Why we need to vaccinate

When you skip vaccines you leave yourself more vulnerable to disease. Vaccines are safe, and just like eating healthy and exercising they play a vital role in your well being.

Vaccinations don’t just help individuals they help everyone in society. If more and more people decide not to vaccinate, people will become sick. Vaccinations teach the body to recognize disease and stimulate body to fight antigens and pathogens. After receiving a vaccine your body builds an adaptive immune response.
