What vaccines do I need?
Or why vaccines still matter. And how you can be sure they’re safe.
Viruses and bacteria can still cause illness and death.
We may live in a different environment compared to our grandparents, but that doesn’t mean that the viruses and bacteria that could cause disease and even death, have disappeared. They can be passed on to anyone who is not protected by a vaccine. In this day and age we travel across the globe in no time, and that’s exactly the time it takes for a bacteria or a virus to move from one place to another
