THE FACTS ABOUT IMMUNIZATIONS:
- Each year, thousands of adults in the United States are hospitalized, or even die, due to serious health problems caused by diseases that could be prevented by regular vaccinations
- Approximately 50,000 adults die each year from vaccine-preventable disease in the U.S.
- Access to primary care is associated with improved health outcomes, including more complete immunizations
