Why Vaccines Are Important For Children

Vaccines are one of our most effective health interventions. Vaccines have protected the human race from dangerous diseases such as Hepatitis B, Smallpox, and Polio for centuries. Although our immune system is our body’s natural defence barrier, it often needs strengthening with vaccines to help us bypass the risks that come with dangerous infections. 

In this article, we will discuss the importance of vaccinations for children and why they need them. It will include factual information regarding the importance of vaccines.

Where To Get Children’s Vaccines

Some vaccines, such as the Chickenpox vaccine, influenza vaccine (under 2 years), BCG, hepatitis a, and travel vaccines are not available for all children via the UK immunisation schedule.
