How Do Vaccines Protect Us From Disease?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), on-time vaccination throughout childhood is essential because it helps provide immunity before children are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases. Vaccines are tested to ensure that they are safe and effective for children to receive at the recommended ages. 

Although children continue to get several vaccines up to their second birthday and sometimes, several in one office visit, these vaccines do not overload the immune system. Learn more on the CDC website..

With so much information—and sometimes incorrect information—available today, learning the facts before making health decisions is very important. 

Do you still have questions about the decision to vaccinate your children?
