Why Vaccines Matter

Your health and wellness matters. Vaccines are important to protect you and others from getting and spreading preventable diseases. Attending annual wellness visits keeps you on track with the recommended routine vaccines that protect you and keep you healthy. Adults should receive yearly vaccines, such as the flu (influenza) vaccine and annual COVID-19 immunization.

Vaccines help keep people well and reduce the severity of their symptoms if they do get sick. There are other recommended vaccines related to age, health, pregnancy, job, lifestyle, and travel. Your primary health care provider can determine which vaccines you need and where to get them.
