Vaccines are
only given to children after a long and careful review
by scientists, doctors, and healthcare professionals.
Vaccines will involve some discomfort and may cause
pain, redness, or tenderness at the site of injection but
this is minimal compared to the pain, discomfort, and
trauma of the diseases these vaccines prevent. Serious
side effects following vaccination, such as severe
allergic reaction, are very rare. The disease-prevention
benefits of getting vaccines are much greater than the
possible side effects for almost all children.

Vaccines, medicines containing a preparation of weakened or dead microbes of the kind that cause a particular disease, are administered to stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies against that disease. They are used to force the body's white blood cells to develop a response to the specific pathogen and rid the body of the invading microorganisms. Immunization can occur naturally when an untreated microbe in the environment is received by a person who has had no prior exposure to that microbe and, therefore, has no pre-made antibodies for defense. The immune system of an otherwise healthy individual will eventually create antibodies for the microbe, but this is a slow process and, if the microbe is deadly, there may not be enough time for the antibodies to begin occur. Artificial active immunization (vaccination) was created to boost the immune system's abilities to more quickly respond. In this process, the microbe is introduced into the person before they have been exposed to take it in naturally from the environment or directly from an infected person. Microbes to naturally from the environment or directly from an infected person. Microbes to be used in a vaccine are (attenuated live vaccines) so that they will not cause disease in the person receiving the vaccination. treated to weaken them Depending on the type of microorganism for which immunization is desired, vaccines can be used made from the attenuated pathogen, from entirely inactivated ("dead") microbes, from incomplete particles of the microbe, or treated toxins from the germ. So receiving vaccination is totally worth it.

Vaccines have reduced and, in some cases, eliminated many diseases that killed or severely disabled people just a few generations ago. For example, smallpox vaccination eradicated that disease worldwide. Your children don"t have to get smallpox shots any more because the disease no longer exists. By vaccinating children against rubella (German measles), the risk that pregnant women will pass this virus on to their fetus or newborn has been dramatically decreased, and birth defects associated with that virus no longer are seen in the United States. If we continue vaccinating now, and vaccinating completely, parents in the future may be able to trust that some diseases of today will no longer be around to harm their children in the future.
