Do I really need to get vaccinated?
Immunizations, or vaccinations, protect you and the people around you. They keep you and your family from catching serious and often untreatable diseases. Even though some of these diseases have almost disappeared in the U.S., you can still get them from travelers if you’re not vaccinated. Fortunately, most vaccines are free or don’t cost much—in fact, getting immunized costs less than getting treated for the diseases the shots protect you from!
