Immunizations

Immunization is important to protect the baby from the diseases that can be fatal for him/her. It is one of the most important things that can be done to ensure baby’s health. Through immunization, a chemical substance that has the causative organism of any given infection/disease is injected to the baby to reduce the possibility ofcatching the disease common during the childhood like whopping cough, measles, diphtheria, chicken pox, small pox, poliomyelitis and yellow fever. Oral doses can also be given.
Some infectious diseases like polio have the potential to cause long-lasting health problems that are permanent in nature. Immunization helps to guard against such hazardous diseases. In the past two decades, vaccines have shown a tremendous ability in preventing serious illnesses, and averted death in millions of cases. They have proved to be one of the most effective tools ever created to help babies live a healthy life.
