Centers for Disease Control recommends getting vaccinations

Vaccinations can reduce hospitalization, death

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends people get vaccinated if they haven't already. While some of the viruses spreading this season are different from those in the vaccine, vaccination can still provide protection and might reduce severe outcomes such as hospitalization and death.

Each year, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices publishes immunization schedules for birth through 18-year-olds. These schedules summarize recommendations for routine vaccines for children.
