Immunizations are one of the most cost-effective and safe ways parents can protect infants, children and teens from 16 potentially harmful diseases. Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization, or even be deadly – especially in infants and young children. For reliable information about immunizations read the following e-book: Plain Talk about Childhood Immunization.
