We all need shots (also called vaccinations or immunizations) to help protect us from serious diseases. To help keep our community safe, Legacy Health Educators is proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month. Are your shots up-to-date?

Shots can prevent serious diseases like the flu, measles, and pneumonia. It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them.  Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get a flu vaccine every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages.
