Diphtheria Vaccination



Diphtheria is now rare in the United States, but people still get the disease. And there have been large outbreaks in countries where vaccination rates have gone down.

Diphtheria can cause serious complications, like paralysis (not being able to move), pneumonia (lung infection), and lung failure. It can also be deadly, especially for certain age groups — 1 in 10 people will die from diphtheria even with treatment.

Getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent diphtheria. And when enough people get vaccinated against diphtheria, the entire community is less likely to get it. So, when you and your family get vaccinated, you help keep yourselves and your community healthy.
