Vaccines can prevent serious illness in infants, children, teens, adults and travelers of all ages.
Thanks to vaccines, we are no longer afflicted with some diseases, such as smallpox. Polio and measles, which used to pose a serious risk to everyone, have now become quite rare in the U.S.
Each vaccine fights against a specific type of germ (virus or bacteria) and given at different times in a person's life to provide optimal protection.
Some vaccines are recommended for infants, while others are given to adults. Some vaccines are best given via needle injection into the skin or muscle, while others work best by when taken by mouth or nasal inhalation.
