Protect your baby by taking him

to be vaccinated

 

mother and child

..Immunizations are an important part of your child’s total health care.

Immunizations protect your children against dangerous diseases. The first vaccines for a baby are a total of six and they are administered in the first six months of life to protect him from 8 diseases caused by viruses and bacteria. After 12 months of age, vaccines for other diseases will be administered as well as booster shot required for full protection from some diseases.

• The benefits of immunizing your children are outweigh the risks.

After a vaccine, ask the nurse or pediatrician about possible side effects and what can be done if they do occur. Most of the children who are vaccinated do not have any adverse side effects. They normally only have minor discomfort, such as soreness where the vaccine was administered, irritability and a slight fever. For more information about the effects of vaccines your child is getting, ask your pediatrician or call the County's Health Department's immunizations office.
