Just Give It a Shot: Immunizations Keep Kids and Communities Healthy

    Comments:  | Leave A Comment


    Going to the doctor for immunization shots may often appear last on our to-do lists, but it is time
    to make them a priority. Measles, mumps, and polio are diseases many of us consider to be
    ancient history, so what is the need for a vaccine? Vaccines help keep these illnesses away from
    our communities. By not getting immunized, these dangerous diseases can appear again quickly
    and spread fast.
    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 200 cases of
    whooping cough, a severe respiratory illness most dangerous to babies, have already been
    reported this year in Michigan. 2013 has also seen the presence of measles in our state. These
    diseases, and many others, can easily be prevented through immunizations.
