Why are infant and childhood immunizations so important?
These shots protect children from diseases such as Measles, Mumps, Rubella (German measles), Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis (whooping cough), Polio, Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib), Hepatitis B, Pneumococcal infections, Rotovirus, Influenza, and Chickenpox.

By getting your child immunized, you will be fighting disease in 2 ways. 1st, you will be protecting your own child. 2nd, since healthy children don’t spread disease, you will be protecting other children as well.
