Vaccines help protect them as they explore it

Actor Portrayal

You teach your children life’s most important lessons.

And childhood vaccination is one lesson you won’t want to delay. Vaccines help teach your child’s immune system to fight disease. When you choose to vaccinate at the recommended times, you’re helping to give your child a head start on a healthy future.

Vaccines help save lives

Every year, vaccines help save the lives of millions of people around the world. That includes children.

If your child is unvaccinated, they have a higher chance of getting sick from vaccine-preventable diseases. And, in some cases, it could be serious.

Vaccines help train your child’s immune system to fight disease

In just a few weeks after getting a vaccine, your child’s immune system (their defense system against sickness) can start to help protect them against a vaccine-preventable disease.

Remember

  • Your child isn’t fully vaccinated against a disease until after they get all recommended doses.
  • Getting your child vaccinated before they come in contact with certain diseases at school, on the playground, or when they visit new places makes sense.

Good to know:

Some diseases we thought were gone have come back. They may pose a risk to your child.

For example: The World Health Organization shared that over 25 million children around the world missed at least one vaccination in 2021 alone. As a result, now there are more outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases more often.

Talk to your child’s doctor about vaccines.

They’ll answer your questions and make sure you know the right age for the recommended pediatric vaccines.
