Why Are Vaccines Important?
Immunizations can help protect your own health, as well as that of your loved ones, community and future generations. Vaccinations help to protect you from serious diseases, and help protect those who would be highly affected by the diseases, such as children and the elderly. Also, when most of a community is immunized, there is less opportunity for a disease to spread.
The physicians and staff at Southcoast Health offer vaccinations at many locations, including primary care and occupational health. Those without access to health care can visit our Southcoast Wellness Van at a location near you.
