Is your vaccination up to date? Check out the Nigerian immunization schedule and find out.

A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins.


Well over the years, there have been concerns on the safety of vaccines especially since some people think they are dangerous and should not be allowed. Whatever our reasons are, i believe vaccines are good and a child should be given the vaccine if it is available. No child should have to die from a vaccine treatable disease.

WHY DO I THINK YOU SHOULD VACCINATE YOUR CHILD?

Immunizations can save your child’s life. Because of advances in medical science, your child can be protected against more diseases than ever before.

Vaccination is very safe and effective. Vaccines are only given to children after a long and careful review by scientists, doctors, and healthcare professionals.

Immunizations can save your family time and money. A child with a vaccine-preventable disease can be denied attendance at schools or daycare facilities.

Immunization protects future generations.Vaccines have reduced and, in some cases, eliminated many diseases that killed or severely disabled people just a few generations ago. For example, Smallpox.
