Immunisation is a simple and effective way of protecting children and adults against certain diseases. It not only protects individuals, but also others in our community by increasing the level of immunity and minimising the spread of disease. Immunisation uses the body’s natural defense mechanism – the immune response – to build resistance to infectious diseases. Immunisation helps people stay healthy by preventing serious infections.
As with all medications, there are some risks associated with immunisation however the benefit of this protection far outweighs any risks of immunisation and the rare side effects or complications.
