Vaccinating your child is one of the most important things you can do to protect their health.

Infants and young children are especially vulnerable to vaccine-preventable diseases because their immune systems are less mature, and therefore less able to fight off infection. In infants and young children, these diseases can cause serious illness, long-term disability, and even death. Vaccines provide the best and safest protection against these diseases. 

Learn about what vaccines your child needs and when, why our child needs to get vaccinated on time, and how to prepare for a better immunization experience.
