One of the most important aspects of ACPNY’s “whole you” care approach is making sure our patients are fully immunized and helping them get the vaccinations they need. Vaccines have long been a key factor in protecting us from viruses and are essential for everyone regardless of their age, health status, or where they live or work. When you get your needed immunizations, you’re protecting not just yourself, but everyone around you—your family, your friends, your neighbors, and your coworkers. Join our Immunity Community and help us protect the health of the communities we serve—like yours!
Vaccines Have Protected Us for Generations
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us had forgotten about or taken for granted the important role immunizations have played in keeping our cities, our country, and our world healthy. For decades, vaccines have helped us overcome serious and potentially life-threatening illnesses such as polio, measles, smallpox, whooping cough, and many others. However, as we’ve seen with recent measles outbreaks and COVID-19 variants, choosing not to be immunized means risking recurrence and spread of these illnesses, which can be dangerous even if you’re in otherwise good health. Remember—vaccines are not new. Vaccines are safe. And vaccines work.
