The Truth About Vaccines
Vaccines are one of the most effective and successful public health tools to prevent disease, illness and premature death from preventable infectious diseases.
Immunizing individuals helps to protect the health of the community, especially children who are too young to be vaccinated or certain people that cannot receive vaccines for medical reasons. The disease-prevention benefits of getting vaccines are much greater than the possible side effects for almost all people. Millions of individuals safely receive vaccines each year. The U.S. has a long-standing vaccine safety system that ensures vaccines are as safe as possible, and there is no evidence to suggest that vaccines threaten a long, healthy life.
