To Vaccinate or Not

IS MMR VACCINE NECESSARY FOR CHILDREN?

Measles is one of the deadliest diseases of all children and can spread very easily. Getting vaccinated for this disease is very important, and we believe that it should be mandatory to vaccinate children with MMR.


ONE VACCINE PREVENTS MANY DISEASES

The MMR vaccine not only prevents measles, but also mumps and rubella, which are also severe illnesses. Getting a vaccination at a young age will save from not one but three diseases.


BARELY ANY TO NO RISKS OR SIDE EFFECTS

Most people who receive an MMR shot are not known to have received any side effects or risks. Mild problems may be soreness or redness where the shot was given, or a slight fever.


ALWAYS BE PREPARED

Measles outbreaks could happen at any cost, or even rubella or mumps. Knowing for sure that a child, or even an adult is vaccinated and safe from the disease is always good to know. MMR shots will give a surety that we are safe from the three diseases.
