Why get vaccinated?

Vaccines cause the body to create defenses called antibodies. The antibodies then protect the vaccinated person when they come into contact with the disease. This is the human body’s totally natural protective reaction.

Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself and others against certain serious diseases. Some of these diseases have no medical treatment. By getting vaccinated, we also reduce the transmission of contagious diseases.
