Vaccinations protect the individual and the public from life threatening, preventable diseases. Healthy individuals, as well as the most vulnerable, benefit from vaccinations. Health care providers, patients, families, and caretakers benefit from becoming immunized; and registered nurses have a responsibility in advocating for necessary vaccines throughout an individuals’ health care continuum. Neonates, pediatric, immunocompromised, and individuals experiencing chronic diseases are especially at high risk for developing preventable disease complications and should also become vaccinated.
