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.
