Immunization Facts

  • When planning a trip, the last thing you want to think about is illness.
  • Immunizations are one of the best ways to protect yourself from serious diseases, many of which can be life threatening.
  • The purpose of a vaccine is to stimulate the body's defense system in order to prepare it for a future encounter with an infectious disease.
