Part of raising a child is bringing them for their routine check-ups at the pediatrician. There are specific appointments when the pediatrician will administer the child’s immunizations. These immunizations protect children from diseases. Many parents still won’t vaccinate their children. Immunizations are very important for children to receive.
Parents who fear immunizations will harm their children need to hear these facts:
- Childhood immunizations reduce the chance of children getting most diseases in the US
- Some diseases are still common in other parts of the world
- Travelers can carry the disease here
- Some of the diseases can cause high fever, choking, becoming deaf, blind, and more
