Role of Immunizations in Pediatrics and Neonates

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFM) all recommend vaccination schedules that cover approximately 14 distinct diseases. Vaccinations not only keep the child safe from deadly diseases like polio, tetanus, and diphtheria, but they also keep other children safe by eradicating or significantly reducing the spread of dangerous diseases from one child to another.

vaccine is a reduced, dead, or fragment of the disease-causing germ. Children's immune systems, which are the body's germ-fighting machines, are able to develop antibodies that prevent them from contracting the disease if and when they are exposed to the disease in its natural form. Over the years, there has been some discussion about whether vaccines are safe, but no convincing evidence of harm has been found. The most important thing to know is that the benefits of getting vaccinated far outweigh any potential drawbacks, despite the fact that any vaccine can cause reactions in children.
