can u get a disease from being around someone who is not vacinated
If you have not been vaccinated for some vaccine preventable diseases or not had those diseases and you are around an unvaccinated person who has the disease, you could be at risk. If you have received the vaccine, you should be protected. However, some vaccines do not offer lifetime protection and so there are some vaccines where boosters are recommended. You can read more info here about the risks involved with not immunizing children. You can also read here why we vaccinate. Find a list of vaccines recommended for adults here.
