- Immunizations are very safe. The shots contain tiny amounts of dead or weakened virus or bacteria that encourage your child’s body to build the antibodies it needs to fight that disease for the rest of her life.
- The benefits of immunization far outweigh any risks posed to your child.
- Though the diseases your child is immunized against are very rare it is still essential you keep his shots up to date to protect him, and others, against a possible outbreak.
Call your public health unit to set up immunization appointments.
