Immunizations are important for people 1 year or older and help prevent countless, often deadly, diseases. Vaccines are administered to stimulate your immune system so should you come in contact with that disease, your body is better prepared to fight it off.</p>
<h3><strong>Vaccinations Save Lives</strong></h3>
<p>In today’s world, many of the deadliest diseases can be stopped in their tracks by a preventative childhood vaccination. Shots are a safe way to protect kids from diseases such as polio, the measles, meningitis and more. These vaccinations are important for your child’s health, and now, you don’t have to go through the hassle of booking in with a general practitioner to receive those shots; visit an AFC location near you to be promptly treated by a qualified professional at your convenience.</p>
<h3><strong>Don’t Forget Those Booster Shots</strong></h3>
<p>Many people believe that after the initial round of shots as a young child, they are set for life. That is not the case in many circumstances. Some shots need boosters to maintain effectiveness. Some colleges even require specific immunizations to enroll. Stop in your local AFC and make sure you are protected and up to date.</p>
<h3><strong>Going Abroad? Get Vaccinated</strong></h3>
