Reasons to take JPEGs 'as well'

Like I think most of us I started off my digital photography by taking JPEGs. I then learned about the benefits of shooting RAW so shot RAW and JPEG fine. Now I'm wondering why I'm shooting JPEG at all.

Is there any reason for taking the JPEG version?

Can I take an unprocessed RAW image straight to the printers? I have only just started with Lightroom and understand that, processed or not, if I take an image from Lightroom, export it?, and put it on a disc / USB it puts the image there as a RAW file anyway. Is that correct?

I'd like to benefit from getting more photos on my card / hard drive so if there is no 'good' reason for keeping the JPEGs maybe it's time to finally get rid of them completely.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
