Vaccines Save Lives.
Vaccines protect human beings from deadly illness. Different types of vaccines work in different ways to offer protection, but all vaccines teach your body how to fight off an illness without having to contract that illness first. When you vaccinate yourself and your loved ones, you are helping to ensure that you all live long, healthy, and happy lives. Now, that’s a win!
Vaccines Are Safe.
Vaccine safety is a top priority for our healthcare system. Before you receive a vaccine, it has gone through numerous safety tests. Once a vaccine has been approved, it continues to be rigorously monitored for any potential safety concerns. You can be confident that any vaccine administered by your doctor has been proven to be safe and effective.
Vaccines Are for All Ages.
Different vaccines are appropriate for different age groups, but all people can benefit from vaccination, regardless of age. Did you know that even mothers-to-be can get vaccinated? Most adults receive Covid, flu, diphtheria, and tetanus vaccines regularly, and many are prescribed other vaccines based on their work, location, or medical history. Got kids? Vaccines are healthy wins for kiddos too! Talk with your doctor about which vaccines are appropriate for your child today.
Vaccines Are Affordable, With or Without Insurance.
Many health insurance plans cover vaccination without charging a copayment–even when the patient has yet to meet their yearly deductible! Not sure if your health insurance will cover the cost? Give them a call and ask. No insurance? Visit www.HealthCare.gov to learn more about affordable health coverage options, or find a federally-funded health clinic where you only pay what you can at: www.findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov.
Vaccines Are Accessible.
Vaccines can be found at doctor’s offices, pharmacies, workplaces, community health clinics, health departments or other community locations, like schools and churches. If your primary healthcare provider does not stock all the vaccines recommended for you, ask for a referral. If you don’t have health insurance or a regular source of health care, it’s easy to find a low cost clinic at: www.findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov.
