My two boys have received all their childhood vaccinations to date. As a researcher, I know the evidence shows the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks.

Vaccines are such an easy thing to do! Less illness for whomever I come into contact with, and for me.

Herpes blisters threatened my eyesight. I got the shingles vaccine for protection from pain and blindness.
Louise Comeault
Almost 13 years ago, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I never want anyone else to go through that.
I was too busy for a flu shot one year, and was sick in bed for two weeks.

I immunize to protect myself and my family, especially my elderly father.

The year I had measles over 500 children died. Today, I no longer see wards for children with infectious diseases.
I want to make sure me, my friends, and my family are safe this season.
