Benefits of Vaccines

From the research over the last decades, vaccines are highly beneficial to children to prevent infectious diseases. Vaccines, like medicines, are possible causes of medical problems. Most are mild and last for few days. Getting vaccine-preventable diseases is much riskier than getting the vaccines.

Please read professional information for immunizations.
Please immunize your child.
Outbreaks of preventable diseases such as measles have occured recently in the United States and England among unimmunized children.

Before the measles vaccine was available, almost all children got the disease.
I120 people died during a measles epidemic outbreak between 1989 and 1991.
There were 1.1 million deaths occurred worldwide from measles in 1995.
Grandparents may still remember a polio epidemic involvine 20,000 people in 1952, leaving many people dead or crippled for life.

Pertussis (whooping cough) can cause complications such as respiratory distress, seizures, coma, and permanent brain damage in infants. Pertussis is an endemic and has not been eradicated.

Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and pneumococcal infection can cause deadly bacterial meningitis, and also pneumonia, blindness, and hearing loss. One in 200 children developed severe Hib disease by age 5 before the vaccine was available.

Hepatitis B can cause significant problems such as chronic liver disease, liver failure, and liver cancers. Hepatitis B can pass from one person to another through blood, body fluids, and breast milk.
