Did you know that among the most effective ways to safeguard your children's health is through recommended vaccinations? Under the expert care of our pediatricians, Dr. Dolly Ubhrani and Dr. Jag Ambwani, here at Longwood Pediatrics in Lake Mary, FL, we offer vaccines to ensure that your child will be protected from various preventable diseases. With this in mind, below are some vaccine facts that highlight how crucial they are for you and your family.
Vaccines are Extremely Effective and Safe
Did you know that vaccines are only made available to the public after they have gone a thorough and extensive review by doctors, scientists, and relevant healthcare professionals? While, vaccines, in some cases, can cause minor fevers and discomfort at the injection site, this is nothing compared to the trauma and pain of the various diseases that these vaccines are capable of preventing. More importantly, the preventive benefits that vaccines provide outweigh the potential side effects.
Vaccinations Could Save The Life of Your Child
Certain diseases that once took the lives of thousands of people have now been successfully eliminated (while others are close to being eliminated) mainly because of effective and safe vaccines. An excellent example of this is polio. What was once considered the most dangerous and frightening disease in the U.S, has now largely been eliminated thanks to the polio vaccine.
Vaccines Can Protect Others Who Can’t Receive Vaccines
It’s unfortunate that some kids can sill contract diseases preventable by vaccines. Some kids might be too young, while others might not be ideal candidates for immunizations because of severe allergies or compromised immune systems due to leukemia. To help ensure the safety of these kids, it’s vital that your kids get timely and complete vaccines from your pediatrician in Lake Mary, FL. This way, besides safeguarding your family, you also help prevent the possibility of spreading these diseases.
Vaccinations also Safeguard Future Generations
Immunizations have minimized, and even eliminated (in certain cases), plenty of diseases such as smallpox that severely disabled or killed many people a couple of generations past. Children these days don’t need to get the smallpox vaccine since it has been completely eradicated. This means that continuing to vaccinate children will help ensure that the future generation won’t have to worry about certain diseases because they won’t exist anymore.
