Immunize to protect your child

Why Immunize?

We all want to protect our children. From the moment they are born we do whatever we can to keep our children safe, both inside and outside the home.

We supervise our children at bath time, install safety gates around the home, keep sharp objects safely out of reach, always use car seats, and teach good hand hygiene. These are just a few of the many things you do as a parent throughout their childhood.

Immunization is absolutely no different and may in fact be one of the most important things you can choose to do to protect your child from serious disease.1

In this section, you can find out more about the many good reasons to choose to immunize your child against diseases that can be prevented by vaccines.
