European Immunisation Week - 24 to 30 April 2017 The Importance of Vaccination

Vaccination, population-wide, is a risk reduction strategy. 
Not only does it reduce the possibility of contracting a disease, but it also reduces the risk of complications and mortality. 

Vaccination is the best protection against certain infectious diseases. 

In addition, it is important to have vaccinations, and subsequently the necessary booster vaccinations, and make sure your vaccinations are up to date. 

Consider having your child's health record or your vaccination record checked by your doctor and update it, if necessary, in line with the vaccination schedule in force.

As a reminder, thanks to vaccination, certain diseases, such as smallpox and polio, have disappeared from western countries. 

It should be noted that, with regard to some diseases, vaccination is the only way to avoid an epidemic. 

In any case, it should be borne in mind that vaccination is effective and side effects are limited.
