Vaccines protect against common diseases by allowing the body to create immunities in response to a weakened version of a virus. While it is important to obtain vaccines at an early age, some vaccines can wear off, losing their effect as you age. Each time you go to the doctors make sure you review your immunization record to ensure that you are up-to-date with your vaccine series.
