National Immunization Awareness Month

August is the best month to make sure that your vaccines are in check. It is right before you go back to school, university, or return to work after a summer break.
Vaccination is the most effective method to protect the body from serious, preventable, and sometimes communicable diseases. Vaccines work by introducing a modified microbe or microbial DNA to trigger the immune system to produce the required antibodies to fight the microbes off, immunizing it. Accordingly, in case a real infection ever occurs, the immune system is capable to fight the disease off quickly and stop the infection.
Vaccination protects infants from 14 serious childhood diseases before the age of two. Some of these diseases are measles, mumps, polio, and pertussis (whooping cough).
Nonetheless, vaccination is necessary at every single stage in life.
During adolescence, the Tdap vaccine is recommended to boost protection against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis.
Moreover, pregnant women and adults who wish to travel to certain parts of the world are much advised to take the necessary vaccinations that would further protect them from life-threatening diseases.

Protect yourself to protect others!
