Why vaccinate your kids?
As a parent, you may not like seeing your baby or child being given an injection. However, vaccination will help protect them against a range of serious and potentially fatal diseases.

There are three good reasons to have your child vaccinated:

  • vaccinations are quick, safe and extremely effective
  • once your child has been vaccinated against a disease, their body can fight it off better
  • if a child isn’t vaccinated, they’re at higher risk of catching – and becoming very ill from – the illness

There will always be some children who are unavoidably unprotected because:

  • they can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons
  • they’re too young to be vaccinated
  • they can’t get to the vaccine clinics
  • the vaccine doesn’t work (although this is rare)
