Vaccines help to prevent infectious diseases that once killed or harmed many infants, children, and adults.

Without vaccines, your child is at risk for getting seriously ill and suffering pain, disability, and even death from diseases like measles and whooping cough.

The main risks associated with getting vaccines are side effects, which are almost always mild (redness and swelling at the injection site) and go away within a few days.

Serious side effects after vaccination, such as a severe allergic reaction, are very rare and doctors and clinic staff are trained to deal with them.

The disease-prevention benefits of getting vaccines are much greater than the possible side effects for almost all children.

The schedule has been made simple:

• At birthday - BCG, OPV0, HEPB0

• 6 weeks - Penta 1, OPV 1, PCV 1

• 10 weeks - Penta 2, OPV 2, PCV 2

• 14 weeks - Penta 3, OPV 3, PCV 3, IPV

• 9 months -Measles, Yellow fever

It takes 5 visits before 1st birthday, for children to be fully immunized.

Get your child vaccinated today!
