It is very important to vaccinate children against deadly diseases. UNICEF says vaccines will help protect your child from diseases that can cause serious harm or death, especially among people with immunodeficiency diseases, such as measles, diphtheria and polio, which were once extinct in many countries. . “
Although certain diseases are no longer present in the community, it is advisable to vaccinate your child because the interconnected world may increase the likelihood of infection from areas where these diseases are still present.
Emphasizing the importance of immunization for children, Dr. Vijay Yewale, a pediatrician at Apollo Hospital, said: A long life means a healthy childhood consisting of nutritious food, exercise and vaccines. Pneumonia kills more children than any other infection and can be easily prevented with a single vaccine. ”
Common vaccines given to children are BCG for tuberculosis, HBB for hepatitis B, vaccine for polio, DTP for diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus.
