Vaccination is one of the best ways to protect yourself from many diseases and infections. Regardless of your age, it is important to remain up to date with your vaccinations.
Vaccination helps the body create antibodies to viruses or bacterium, and to prevent infection from disease-causing microbes. When the organism is exposed to these pathogens, the immune system is better prepared to face an attack.
The following vaccines are available at the Clinique santé sexualité du Plateau (CSSP):
- Gardasil 9 (protects against HPV infection);
