Why Are Immunizations/Vaccines So Important?

Crenshaw Family Medical Group says that immunizations are specific to age groups such as children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Immunizations protect children, adolescents, adults, and seniors and provide immunity against life-threatening diseases across all age levels.

Immunizations are intensively tested for safety to ensure your and the child's safety and the vaccine's effectiveness at all ages. Vaccinations are a must for seniors because senior immunity decreases as age progresses.
