Why is Vaccinating Your Children Important?
Vaccinations help protect your children from different harmful and potentially lethal viruses, diseases and illnesses by pre-exposing them to the illness so that their immune system can make antibodies and are able to fight the live illness of if they come in contact with it.

Help them to understand the
importance of vaccines.

Why should we care about vaccinating children?
Why Are Children at Risk?
• Children have a higher risk of catching these diseases than adults or even teenagers because of their underdeveloped or weaker immune systems, and their close proximity to other children or their families.

• Children do not always think of preventative measures to stop the spread of these illnesses and thus it tends to spread quickly and effectively through schools, daycares, etc.

• Each season, on average, 9.8% of children 0-14 years show signs and symptoms of influenza – the flu – and incident rates are noticeably higher in children under 5 years old. Most times it also has a greater effect on children younger than 5 years and can lead to hospitalization or further complications.

• This is especially true if they already have a compromised immune system because of any allergies or previous health concerns or illnesses.
Why Vaccinate?
• Some vaccinations help provide lifelong immunity to specific string of viruses, and diseases and can therefore lower the amount of antibiotics your child may have to consume in their lifetime.

• Getting your children vaccinated can help protect not only your own child, but the children they play with as well as the rest of the community.

• Vaccinating is a preventative measure; vaccinating your children can help stop the spread of illnesses in your children before it occurs.

What's in them?

Egg Protein
helps to boost immune response
prevent growth of other bacterias
mercury preservative - added to vaccine vials to prevent contamination from multiple doses
help vaccine to remain the same after exposure to heat, light, acidity, humidity
kills bacteria and viruses, then removed from vaccines
growth medium for viruses

How Does This Effect Health?
Parents, are you vaccinated?
recent measles outbreak
not everyone has the opportunity
protecting the future
the benefits greatly outweigh the risks

vaccinate your children?
Health Promotion Strategy
Vaccinations have advanced our health care system for the better.
Parent education about vaccines will ensure our future will be safe.
Spreading your knowledge of vaccines to other parents will help maintain and preserve the health of the future.
1. Identifying the opinions on vaccinating children within your community
2. Gather data based on community opinion
3. Utilize this data to change or strenghten the way the community feels about child vaccination.
4. The community can work together to promote health!
Support from our family, friends, and community keep us motivated to maintain healthy living
, strong community action is also seen amongst the anti-vaccine movement
A more educated community will have a larger impact on changing the way some parents view vaccinations

As vaccinations are the topic of the news lately, whether or not to vaccinate children is a huge debate. Why should we care about vaccinating children though? The biggest thing is that you are protecting your child. Here are a few other reasons:

Evidence in the NEWS
By: Jeremy Edis, Emma Hadath, Persephanie Mullin, Bailey Longney
-You are keeping your child safe from a potentially harmful illness/disease.
-You are preventing the spread of
illnesses/diseases to other children
and families.
-The symptoms of the disease/
illness are much worse than the
side effects of the vaccine,
so you are protecting your child
from harm.
