Don't Wait Vaccinate! Unity™ Consortium Can Help

Did you know that doctor well-check visits are significantly down due to the Covid-19 pandemic?  Unfortunately, some parents have been opting out of taking their adolescents for their annual physicals or check-ups. Not taking adolescents for these important doctor visits can be dangerous as these visits are a preventative measure and a vital time for parent, patient, and doctor communication.

During well-check visits and annual physicals, health care providers check to make sure vaccinations are up-to-date in addition to giving patients time-sensitive screenings to detect health problems before they become serious.

Immunizations are Important

The Center for Disease Control recommends vaccines to protect against serious illnesses including meningitis (2 vaccines), cancers caused by HPV, whooping cough, and flu. These routine immunizations are important to keep adolescents healthy. Vaccines may be needed for adolescents to return to in-person activities such as sports, summer camps, and school.

Understandably, some parents may be skeptical about visiting healthcare providers for well-check visits and vaccinations due to all of the disinformation online.  

Unity Consortium is a non-profit organization that unites diverse groups around a common passion – the imperative to protect adolescents and young adults against all vaccine-preventable diseases to support lifelong health. Their vision is to ensure that 90% of adolescents and young adults are vaccinated with nationally recommended vaccines.

Unity's website helps put parents' minds at ease with valuable vaccine information and helpful resources.

Unfortunately, the decline in immunization rates results in increased susceptibility to vaccine-preventable illness. This gap is even more pronounced for vulnerable populations including minority and lower-income families.

My daughter's health is important to me. After reading about the importance of making sure adolescent vaccines are up to date and the safety precautions that healthcare providers have put in place on Unity's website, I recently took my daughter to get her vaccines up to date.   I honestly feel better knowing that I did the right thing for her health and safety as well as the health and safety of our community.

  • Unity Consortium sounds like quite a wonderful organization. In the midst of the chaos of this past year or so- it’s important for everyone to unite and become vaccinated so we can change what is left of our future. Regardless of age, sex, race, or sexual orientation, we do have a responsibility to ourselves and everyone else’s well-being. Vaccines of every kind are so important for our health in general. This blog was very refreshing to read.

  • Vaccination is so important for us as individuals and for society as a whole. The more of us who get our vaccinations, the better off we’ll all be.

  • We’re all vaccinated here, and I hope that everyone else will, too. It’s so important for us personally and as a society.

  • I hope that everyone will take advantage of their ability to be vaccinated. Here in India we are desperate for the vaccine.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with everyone. I have been vaccinated, but I know so many people who haven’t for one reason or another. =/

  • In my area, we have COVISHIELD and I recently got vaccinated. I decided not to wait for other kinds of vaccines. Got whatever I could and extremely happy about my decision.

  • Got vaccinated recently because I got a slot. Happy about the decision of not waiting for options to be available.

    Thank you for sharing this. Everyone getting vaccinated as soon as possible is important and learning about different ways that can facilitate that is great!

  • So far my husband and I are vaccinated, and our older daughter. It feels good to have that safety net!

    I had my annual flue vaccination last week in preparation for the winter season. I hate being sick, and vaccination is a good prevention.

    Thank you a lot for introducing about Unity Consortium!
    However, I’m still worrying about the quality of the vaccine atm. Currently I’m waiting for vaccine developed in my country Vietnam.
