As a parent, you make informed choices about your child’s health and safety every day. You research which car seat has the highest safety ratings, you read food labels to find the best nutrition for your child, and you consult friends and experts about which sleep options keep baby healthy, happy, and secure. Your choice to immunize is no different. Making an informed choice about immunization is critical to protecting your child’s health.
Parents like you choose vaccination for a variety of reasons:
- Vaccinating prevents unnecessary illness and suffering for your child.
- Vaccinating protects your community from disease, including the vulnerable members.
- Experts agree it’s the best thing you can do to protect against preventable diseases.
- Vaccinating extends beyond your community to help eliminate disease worldwide.
