August is Immunization Awareness Month

We all need shots (vaccines) to help protect us from serious diseases. This protection is called immunization. To help keep our community safe, Morning Glory Assisted Living and Rainsville Drugs are proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month. Shots can prevent serious diseases like the flu, measles, HPV, and pneumonia. It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them.

Morning Glory employees and residents receive flu shots every year
Rainsville Drugs Staff is available to provide vaccines for most common immunization protection or travel

Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get a flu vaccine every year. Other types of shots work best at specific ages or life stages.

If you have a child age 6 or younger, learn which shots your child needs.
