Immunizations (vaccines) protect adults and children against outbreaks of polio, mumps, and other diseases that can make them very sick or even cause death.
How do vaccines work?
Vaccines train the body to fight germs that cause disease. When exposed to disease, the body will know how to fight and kill the germs before they cause health problems. This is called immunity against disease.
Why so many vaccines?
Vaccines are needed in all stages of life. Many are given to infants and young children who need them the most to Grow Well. Vaccines protect against diseases such as:
- Influenza (Flu)
- Measles, mumps, rubella
- Varicella (chicken pox)
- Pertussis (whooping cough)
For a complete list of shots, see the Recommended Immunization Schedule for Persons Aged 0-18 (PDF) and Immunization Brochure (PDF).
