flu shotVaccinations and immunizations are very popular topics among health care consumers. In fact, if you search for the term ‘vaccines’ online you will have more than 27 million results. A lot of people question whether it’s good for children or adults to receive them.

Consumer Reports recently released information on this topic to assure individuals that vaccines actually save lives. They reported that each year, more than 30,000 Americans die because they did not get needed vaccines. In fact, you are more likely to get very sick from the disease rather than from the vaccine that protects you from it.

The report will help the health care consumer:

  • Learn more about different types of vaccines.
  • Ask your doctor which vaccines are right for you based on your age, health or other factors.
  • Get the vaccines you need. Make sure you stay up to date.
  • Keep track of the vaccines you get.
