We all need shots (vaccines) to help protect us from serious diseases. This protection is called immunization. Shots can prevent serious diseases like the flu, measles, and pneumonia. It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them.

Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get a flu vaccine every year. Other types of shots work best at specific ages or life stages.

Talk to your doctor or nurse to make sure that everyone in your family gets the shots they need.
