Vaccinations Q & A

Are vaccinations safe?

Vaccinations include a tiny amount of dead or deactivated viruses, bacteria, or toxins. These ingredients provoke an immune response, which helps your body recognize and fight the disease in the future. Vaccinations have been proven safe and effective over many years. The bottom line is that it’s far safer to get vaccinations than to skip them. Vaccinations protect you from many serious diseases, some of which could be deadly.

What vaccinations do children need?

Hepatitis A and B













Human papillomavirus (HPV)

Do children need flu vaccinations Every year?

Children need flu vaccinations once a year. The other vaccinations occur at different points during infancy, toddlerhood, and early adolescence. Your child may need other vaccinations if they’ve ever experienced certain illnesses that aren’t common in America. And, if your family plans international travel soon, your child may need additional vaccinations as part of travel medicine care.

Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap)

Do Adults need a flu Vaccine every year?
