Our humans need immunizations (also called vaccines or shots) to help protect them from serious diseases. To help keep our community safe, I am proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month, via this blog post.
Shots can prevent serious diseases like measles, diphtheria, and rubella. It’s important to know which shots our humans need and when to get them.
- Everyone age 6 months and older needs a seasonal flu shot every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages.
- If you have a child age 6 or younger in your pack, find out which shots your child needs.
- Find out which shots your teenager needs.
- All human adults need a booster shot every 10 years to help protect them against tetanus and diphtheria.
Our humans do so much for us, it's only right that we look after them too!
