Childhood Vaccines

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Vaccines are shots, liquids, pills, or nasal sprays that you take to educate the immune system to recognize and safeguard versus harmful germs. Other types of vaccines include instructions for your cells to make a protein of the bacterium. Your child's immune system will remember the bacterium and attack it if that bacterium ever gets into again. And now with vaccines, your child can get resistance from these diseases without needing to get ill. And for a few vaccines, getting immunized can really offer you a better immune response than getting the disease would. Immunizing your child also protects others. Normally, germs can travel swiftly through a community and make a lot of people sick. When sufficient people are immunized against a certain disease, it's more difficult for that disease to spread to others. Community immunity is particularly important for the people who can not get specific vaccines. Some people stress that childhood vaccines might cause autism spectrum disorder.
