You protect your children every day. But did you know, one of the best ways to protect your child is to make sure they have, and are up to date all of their vaccinations?

 

  1. Immunizations Save Lives
    Immunizations can save your child’s life and protect them against more diseases than ever before.  With advances in medical science, diseases that once injured or killed children have been completely eliminated through vaccines. Polio is a great example of this.
  2. Safe and Effective
    You may worry that vaccinations may cause pain and discomfort to your child. You may also worry that they may cause serious side-effects. The disease-prevention benefits of vaccines are much greater than any side effects for most children and can save your child’s life.
  3. Immunizations Also Protect Others
    Vaccinations prevent disease. If your child is a carrier of a preventable-disease and are not vaccinated, they can pass that disease along to others. It is important to have your child immunized to stop the spread of disease to your loved ones and family members that may be at risk of getting the disease.

Immunizing your child can save the lives of your child, your loved ones, and stop the spread of preventable diseases. Contact your doctor if you have any questions about immunizing your child.
