Immunization

Get immunized. Be protected.

Vaccines create immunity to protect us from infections. Vaccines can also be called immunization, needles or shots.

Do not delay your child's vaccination. Vaccines work best when all children are immunized on time. Immunization protects us all from serious diseases.
