A Valuable Tool
"People may want to get a needed vaccine before going on a trip, for HPV or Shingles prevention, or simply to be up-to-date with their vaccines. From personal experience, I know first hand how tedious this exercise can be. So we did what we do best: created a website to help Canadians in their search to stay healthy", says Francisca Roel, founder and architect of Vaccines 411™.
