The following information is from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to learn more about vaccines for adults please go to: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/adults/reasons-to-vaccinate.html
Vaccines can lower your chance of getting certain diseases. Vaccines work with your body’s natural defenses to help you safely develop immunity to disease. This lowers your chances of getting certain diseases and suffering from their complications. For instance:
· Hepatitis B vaccine lowers your risk of liver cancer.
· HPV vaccine lowers your risk of cervical cancer.
· Flu vaccine lowers your risk of flu-related heart attacks or other flu-related complications from existing health conditions like diabetes and chronic lung disease.
