Did you know that August is National Immunization Awareness Month? Each year, we use this time to remind our patients that kids AND adults should get their recommended vaccines. By getting your vaccines, you can protect not only yourself but also your loved ones from serious diseases, such as whooping cough, measles, pneumonia, the flu, and others.
If you’re unsure of which vaccines you should get, call us to make an appointment (1-800-859-0085). You can also access the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Adult Vaccine Assessment Tool. Just answer a handful of questions and get a list of vaccines you may need. (Your doctor or APP here at Horizon Family Medical Group can work with you to identify the vaccines you have already received and the vaccines you still need.)
