Some facts about Vaccines and Immunizations
- All vaccines must be licensed and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before being used in the United States, and a vaccine must go through extensive testing to show that it works and that it is safe before the FDA will approve it.
- If you have ever had chickenpox, you could get Shingles now. The same virus that causes chickenpox also causes Shingles. The virus stays in your body and can later resurface as Shingles- a painful, blistering rash. If you have ever had Shingles you should also receive the vaccine- Shingles can come back, and is usually worse the 2nd time around!
- During most influenza seasons, an average of 5-20% of the US population is infected with seasonal influenza virus. Seasonal influenza immunization can reduce visits to the doctor’s office, lost work or school days, and reduce antibiotic use.
- Each year on average in the US, more than 50,000 adults die from vaccine-preventable diseases or complications.
