About Vaccines

Vaccines save 2-3 million lives each year. Wherever children are not vaccinated, their lives and their communities are at risk.

What are vaccines?

Vaccines are shots and drops that protect against serious diseases. Medicine helps people get better when they are sick. Vaccines prevent people from getting sick in the first place. Most vaccines are given to babies because it is easy for babies to get sick, but most vaccines protect for life. Each vaccine protects against a particular disease so it is important to get all shots.

How do vaccines work?

Vaccines protect your child against dangerous diseases. Vaccines protect against diseases by mimicking an infection to activate body’s natural immunity. Most childhood vaccines require multiple doses to produce strong immunity to disease and may require periodic booster doses to counteract waning immunity
