JOIN US PARENTS & PUBLIC MEMBERS & HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS DONATE WHY I IMMUNIZE


For my family's health

07/01/2013 : I grew up with severe asthma and allergies. I always received my annual flu shot and had all my immunizations to protect me from illness and disease. When I had my beautiful baby girl Ada in 2009, she unfortunately inherited my health issues. She is also diagnosed with asthma and has anaphylaxis reaction to egg, milk and peanut. This makes her unable to receive the flu vaccine annually which could protect her against life threatening influenza due to her asthma. It is imperative to teach people how important their vaccination is in protecting my daughter and other immune compromised individuals who cannot be vaccinated, like my 91 year old grandmother or my aunt who is fighting ovarian cancer. Think about people you love and how your immunization can protect them from disease as well.

I get immunized to ensure that I don't pass dangerous, yet preventable diseases on to my son.

06/07/2013 : I get immunized to ensure that I don’t pass dangerous, yet preventable diseases on to my son. He is too young to be fully protected from vaccine-preventable disease, yet by making sure that I am fully immunized, along with his other close contacts, I help to keep him shielded from these disease.

We've Come Too Far...

06/07/2013 : We’ve Come Too Far For me, it’s not enough if all my family and friends and even all of my fellow West Virginians protect themselves with vaccinations against diseases like pertussis, HPV and hepatitis B. It’s not enough that we have eradicated measles, rubella and polio from the United States and that these diseases only show up in our country when travelers bring them in from overseas. For all of the children of the U.S. over the last 50 years who have diligently taken shots we didn’t want to get and the parents who consented to vaccinations for our kids that were costly and came with worries – worries which have been mitigated - I immunize and work to ensure that we don’t undo the great benefits we all achieved for society as babies and consenting parents. The world is much smaller than it used to be and is getting smaller by the day. And vaccines have never been purer or safer. Mundane things like driving to work on any given day carry much more risk than appropriately vaccinating your child. We’ve come too far to take steps backward and let hundreds of millions of boo boos received at the doctor’s offices become all for naught.
