August 03, 2015

Vaccines are crucial in the process of protection from diseases – including serious and deadly ones. Vaccines can prevent suffering, hospitalization and even death as a result of some diseases.

Although vaccines are very important in childhood but their importance continue through different age groups including:

-  Childhood (Birth to 6 years)

-  Teens

-  Pregnant women

-  Adults

Consult with your physician your age-appropriate vaccine and follow-up with your children’s pediatrician to ensure all vaccines are taken on time.
