What to Know about Vaccinations

What is a Vaccination?

A vaccination is an injection administered with the intent to weaken or kill organisms or viruses and produce immunity against these organisms. Vaccines are the safest defence against diseases and can help those around you to stay free of illnesses like the flu during flu season.

Preventing the spread of a disease can help:

*Babies who cannot have vaccinations
*Unvaccinated children & adults
*The Elderly
*Those with weakened immune systems from other illnesses
*Pregnant women
*Those allergic to vaccinations

When Is the Best Time to Get a Vaccination?

Holding off on vaccinations does more harm than good. Your immune system becomes vulnerable to any illnesses spreading in the New Milford area. Immunization is the best way to stay healthy. Without vaccines, preventable diseases are proven to return. Due to overseas travel, diseases are easily carried into the United States and we want to protect you from the simple diseases to the more serious ones.
