Vaccine-Preventable Diseases & Infections
Many people don’t realize the important role vaccines can play in keeping adults healthy. As a result, most adults are not vaccinated as recommended. Each year in the US, vaccine-preventable diseases kill more adults than traffic accidents, breast cancer, and HIV/AIDS. Millions of people get sick, leading to missed work, not being able to care for those who depend on them, and passing the illness on to others.
