Vaccinations are important in all ages for the prevention of many kinds of diseases. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention the National Immunization Awareness Month was created to encourage many people of all ages to be up to date on getting their vaccines; as well as preventing serious and sometimes fatal diseases. Each week of August there will be a focus on the different stage of life people are in from infancy until adulthood. This may encourage many people of different age groups to update their vaccinations; this can also be a reminder to parents of the importance of protecting their children’s health. A few examples of important vaccinations include the flu shot for all ages as well as newborns receiving a vaccine for whooping cough. Here at DV Medical Supply, Inc. we provide supplies to medical clinics so they may ensure good health in their patrons of all stages of life.
