How do Vaccines Work?

Vaccinations are a way to protect your body from harmful diseases. Vaccines work by stimulating your immune system to recognize and fight specific germs, such as viruses or bacteria.

By getting vaccinated you:

  • Greatly reduce the risk of getting sick
  • Avoid developing severe complications from diseases
  • Contribute to the health of your community
  • Prevent the spread of infections
