DON'T NEGLECT, VACCINATE!
The truth about vaccination
Immunization saves lifes. Know it!
According to UNICEF Organisation, every year immunization can be credited with saving approximately 9 million lives worldwilde. A further 16 million deaths a year could be prevented if effective vaccines were deployed against all potentially vaccine-preventable diseases. After two hundred years from the discovery of vaccine we managed to bring 7 diseases under control: smallpox, diphtheria, tetanus, yellow fever, whooping cough, polio, and measles.
We are close to eradicate poliomyelitis!
When a disease stops circulating in a region, it’s considered eliminated in that region.
Polio, though it has been reduced or eliminated in many countries through widespread vaccination, still circulates in some areas because many cases do not present easily recognizable symptoms. Over 80% of the world's children are now being immunzed against polio virus!

Mith & Reality
Anyway, what every parent needs to know, is that the associated side-effects from a shot are considered insignificant in comparison with the damage of contracting the disease itself which in most cases is fatal!
