Immunizations make good health sense

 

Immunizing your child is one way you can give a head start on the road to health and happiness. We believe it's the best way to protect your son or daughter from serious infection. We also believe it's the best way for you, as an adult, to protect yourself, as immunity from anything is rarely lifelong.

The immunization of children has garnered a lot of negative attention in recent years, namely around the perceived link between vaccines and autism. But years of research have shown no credible connection between the two. Most recently, we've seen a resurgence in diseases that have been dormant, namely pertussis (whooping cough) and measles. It makes us all the more passionate that everyone — including the most vulnerable among us — receive the protection they need.

We encourage you to educate yourself. Talk to your child's or your health care provider. Ask questions. Collect the information you need to make the right decision for you and your family.
