Why getting vaccinated is important

eAwaz Medicine

Ottawa – Vaccination is one of the most important ways to protect you and your loved ones from becoming infected or developing serious complications. Vaccines can help prevent the spread of disease, which helps protect people who can’t get vaccinated, like:

  • very young infants
  • people who are immunocompromised

Some vaccines offer life-long protection, while others require annual vaccination or booster doses to continue providing protection throughout your life. Vaccination schedules can vary, depending on which province or territory you live in. Talk to a health care provider or your local public health unit for more information about vaccines.
