Why do we need vaccines?
None of us wants to see our children get sick. If we could, we would protect
them from any illness, no matter how
Now suppose you could make your child safe from some of the most deadly diseases in history...And suppose that at the same time you could also help protect your neighbors' children and other children around the country from the same diseases...And finally, suppose you could actually help to rid the world of some of these diseases that have been crippling and killing children for centuries.
You can do all of these things with one of the easiest and yet most powerful health tools ever developed. You can make sure your children get their immunizations.
