Brooksville, FL - Dr. Vatsala Sastry is a highly regarded infectious disease specialist in practice for over twenty years.
“It’s absolutely critical to accurately educate the public that vaccinations are indeed the most widely recognized and highly effective precautionary approach in defending ourselves against infectious diseases,” says Dr. Sastry.
“Over the last thirty years vaccines have proven to be absolutely mandatory and we must continue to acquire all the necessary and proper vaccinations to protect ourselves,” says Dr. Sastry.
Although vaccines have been known to pose certain risks and side effects, the fact remains that the use of vaccines has far outweighed the risks. Notably, vaccines are responsible for annihilating smallpox one of the most deadliest diseases in the history of the world. Vaccines have literally saved millions of countless lives.
“One shining example of how effective vaccines truly are can be traced back to our military personnel who are all required by the U.S. armed forces to receive a variety of immunizations against diseases,” says Dr. Sastry.
“It’s truly a blessing to treat be able to treat veterans in my practice since I have an enormous amount of admiration for their courage and dedication in fighting for our country,” says Dr. Sastry. “We need to continually give back to our wonderful veterans for all they have done for us.”
Dr. Sastry strongly urges us to remain mindful that most Illnesses are totally preventable, fixable, and avoidable when we take proper precautions. Other than vaccines, she recommends a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables, getting plenty of rest, thoroughly washing our hands, and maintaining a healthy, strong immune system.
