As parents, we always want to make decisions that protect our kids. It’s natural to want to understand the potential risks of vaccination, especially when there is so much misinformation about vaccines on the internet. Here’s what you need to know about vaccine safety based on real medical research and science.
It’s hard for us today to see just how important vaccines are to our overall health because they’ve been so effective in preventing dangerous diseases and saving millions of lives. The numbers tell the story. Before vaccines, parents and their children faced a much different reality.
Your decision to vaccinate affects more than just your child. By vaccinating your child, you also help protect other children in your community, specifically those who can’t receive vaccinations or are too young to be vaccinated. This umbrella of protection is known as community immunity.
