Diseases can be prevented by routine vaccinations. So many diseases can spread easily from person to person, mainly through coughing and sneezing. They can be serious enough to cause severe complications. Vaccines are a safe and effective way to keep you from getting very sick from the real disease.
Vaccines are made with a tiny amount of dead or weakened germs. The dead or weakened germs in vaccines help your immune system to create both antibodies and immune memory. These two tools will help to recognize and fight off the germs if your body is exposed to them in the future. Have a question? Call us today.
Routine vaccination is free across Canada. Vaccines work best when they are given on time, and it should be administered when your child is very young. It is important to check that your own vaccinations are up to date. Vaccination is a lifelong process.
