Vaccines were initially developed in the 1700’s and have been used to reduce or eradicate many dangerous illnesses, including, but not limited to, smallpox, polio, tetanus, whooping cough, measles, mumps and rubella.

How Vaccines Work…

Vaccines are weakened bacteria that simulate an illness when they are injected in your body. In response to this simulation, your body develops a supply of defensive cells to fight off similar infections in the future, preventing you from developing the real illness.
Vaccinating enough of a population leads to a type of resistance called “herd
immunity,” which means there are so few non-vaccinated people that an illness is
unable to spread and become an epidemic.

Why do some people believe vaccines are harmful?

In 1998, a paper was published linking the MMR vaccine to autism. The findings were widely criticized by the scientific community and have since been retracted, but they sparked an unnecessary fear of all vaccinations that persists to this day. As a result, some parents forego vaccines and inadvertently cause the return of
preventable diseases, such as measles and mumps (which are prevented by the MMR vaccine).

In recent years, a lot of misinformation has been spread related to the dangers of vaccinating children. But the
objective truth is that vaccines are safe, side effects are extremely rare and the vast majority of the medical
community supports the use of vaccinations.
