The What, How, and Why of Vaccination

If you're vaccinated and likely not to be affected by a disease, you will also lower the chance that you spread the disease to those you love, or to those who are vulnerable.

A vaccine has the same germs that cause disease, but the germs have been killed or weakened, so that you won't get sick. That way your body learns to fight the weak version of the disease and has a better chance of fighting the full-blown disease.

COVID-19 and the flu together could really hurt communities and overwhelm hospitals. Vaccinate, so that we can do everything we can to protect our loved ones.
