Monthly Health Observance

Immunization Awareness

August's Health Observance is Immunization Awareness:

Understanding Vaccines

Vaccines are an important tool to help manage public health.  A vaccine is a small dose of germs that mimic an illness it is designed to prevent.  This helps our bodies remember and recognize that infection and helps create antibodies to fight it off if we were to be exposed to it again in the future. Typically, primary care providers check patients' charts to make sure they're up to date on any regularly scheduled vaccines during an annual preventive care exam.  Due to missed preventive care in 2020, many people may also need to catch up on any doses that they may have missed.

Vaccines, or immunizations (often used interchangeably) are often given through an injection (like an annual flu shot) and are typically administered by doctors, nurses, and pharmacists.  There are many options for receiving regularly scheduled child and adult vaccines.  Walk-in clinics, pharmacies, neighborhood health centers, and even some schools or churches offer vaccines, like flu shots.

There are several vaccines for infectious diseases or illnesses you may be familiar with.  It is recommended by the CDC that certain vaccines are given at certain ages, or for unique circumstances (like traveling abroad).  If you're beginning to think about international travel again, be sure to talk with your doctor about where you're headed in case you may need a few more vaccines before you hop on the plane.

Common vaccines include COVID-19, Flu, Tetanus, Whooping Cough, Polio, Shingles, Chickenpox, Smallpox, Hepatitis A & B, Human Papilloma Virus, Measles, Mumps.
