We at SHOTS, etc. believe the reason that most Americans are not up-to-date on their routinely recommended age-appropriate immunizations is because they do not have the information they need to actually understand the risks of being unprotected against certain vaccine preventable diseases. Most of us have not lived through the devastating disease outbreaks that our parents and grandparents did so it is difficult to understand why we need protection today. We have included here some very important information about the vaccines available to us today. Please click on the name of each vaccine to learn more about the potentially devastating diseases we may face unless more of us are protected.
