Vaccinate NY

Vaccines protect people by preparing the immune system to recognize and fight serious and sometimes deadly diseases. Additional education on the latest data and evidence-based strategies to improve immunization rates is needed. For example, evidence suggests that immunizing pregnant women and their close contacts against the flu and pertussis reduces both maternal and infant morbidity and mortality. In addition, for pre-teens and teens, there is strong evidence that the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine protects them from serious health problems, including certain cancers. For adults, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends immunization against 15 infectious diseases, such as influenza, pneumococcal disease, zoster (shingles), measles and hepatitis A and B, and the evidence shows that a strong provider recommendation will greatly increase the acceptance of vaccinations. Vaccines are particularly important to reduce complications for people with chronic diseases and have the potential to reduce not only morbidity and mortality, but also costs associated with avoidable hospitalization and medical care.
