Importance of Vaccines and Immunization

Vaccination or Immunization is a way of creating immunity or resistance to certain diseases by using small amounts of a killed or weakened form of a disease-causing agent or microorganism that causes the particular disease in order to stimulate the production of antibodies to fight off the disease.

Vaccines prevents babies from diseases such as polio, pertussis (whooping cough), diphtheria, measles, rubbela (German measles), mumps, Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib) and tetanus that sometimes even causes death. Aside from preventing your child from diseases it also helps prevent diseases to spread out. 

Do you know that it is better to spend money by having your child vaccinated compared to actually curing those diseases? Medicines and hospital cost are much costlier than few shots of vaccines.

Prevention is better than cure. Protect your child from virus and bacteria causing diseases. Have him immunized as early as possible.
