Immunizations

shot

Why should your child be fully immunized?

Before vaccines became widely available, diseases like measles, mumps and whooping cough were common in childhood, and thousands died or were left blind, deaf or brain-damaged by them. Today vaccines have totally or nearly eradicated several diseases such as smallpox, polio, diphtheria and hib infections, according to the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Despite available vaccines, many diseases still persist putting unvaccinated babies and toddlers at risk. The CDC reported in the 2011 MMWR Weekly that 72% of the Indiana population ages 19-35 months have completed their childhood series of immunizations. That's GREAT progress, however this means 28% of our young ones are still left vulnerable.
