Right from the time of birth, till the age of 12, your child will be vulnerable to a host of diseases, viruses, and bacteria. At such a tender age, the body of your child may not have the required immune system to protect them from these communicable diseases. In an event, where your child may contract a disease or virus, the consequences may be dire. Certain diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and HVP still exist today, and can still be easily be transmitted from one individual to another. In many parts of the world vaccine- preventable diseases are still common, and there is every chance of your child contracting them.
To prevent such an occurrence, the ideal solution is to protect your child through vaccination.
