Speak Up About Vaccinations

Vaccines are life-saving tools that reduce the risk of serious illness or death due to infection from viruses or bacteria. Getting vaccinated is a personal health decision. Like all important decisions, patients should get the best information they can to make an informed choice.

Speak Up™ About Vaccinations, a patient safety campaign from The Joint Commission, is designed to educate patients on vaccinations and when and for what they may be needed.
