The Importance of Immunization

With a growing collection of infectious and deadly diseases/viruses that exist in today’s world, Immunization has become a critical part in the protection of our community and ourselves. Some diseases that can be avoided thru immunization include: Hepatitis A & B, Polio, Measles, Rotavirus, Tetanus, Rubella, Mumps, Meaningococcal, Human Papillomavirus, and many many more.

These various diseases can be extremely painful and can lead to death. However thru immunization between 2 to 3 million deaths are prevented each year. Children, students and the more vulnerable members of our community should be immunized. The process of immunization involves injecting the patient with a weakened form or fragment of a disease. This causes the body to trigger its immune response, creating antibodies to that particular ailment and triggering its immunity defenses.
