Vaccinations are safe and effective at preventing disease.

Protect yourself, your whānau, and your community. Immunise.

Immunisations are designed to protect people and populations from infectious diseases. Vaccines stimulate the immune system to recognise and fight specific pathogens, such as viruses or bacteria. By receiving immunisations, patients can significantly reduce their risk of contracting serious illnesses and the potential complications associated with them.

Immunisations help to safeguard an individual's health by preventing the onset of various infectious diseases. Vaccines have been instrumental in reducing the incidence and severity of illnesses like measles, polio, influenza, hepatitis, and many others. By staying up to date with recommended immunisations, patients can protect themselves and maintain their well-being.

Vaccinations play a crucial role in achieving community immunity, also known as herd immunity. When a significant portion of a population is immune to a particular disease, the spread of that disease is limited, protecting even those who are not vaccinated or have weakened immune systems. Immunisations are especially important for individuals who cannot receive vaccines due to medical conditions, as their protection relies on the immunity of others.

Vaccination programs have proven to be effective in preventing outbreaks and controlling the spread of diseases. By achieving high vaccination rates, communities can minimise the risk of epidemics and reduce the burden on healthcare systems. Immunisations help break the chain of transmission, protecting vulnerable populations and saving lives.

At Ōpunake Medical we understand there is confusing and scary misinformation on the internet about vaccinations.
