Offering More Than The Covid Vaccine

Vaccinations protect us from infectious diseases like measles, mumps, and rubella. Each year, vaccines save three million lives that would have otherwise been lost to infectious diseases. Diseases that used to kill millions of people each year have been virtually eliminated since people started getting vaccinated against them. Those with suppressed immune systems and other medical conditions like childhood cancer may not be able to get vaccinated, but if the majority of the population is vaccinated, the vulnerable populations will be protected against infectious diseases.
