1. Aren’t childhood diseases part of the normal process of a child’s development? Why should I prevent this by having the baby immunised?

  • Some childhood diseases cause mild symptoms, but many can cause serious illness, disability, or even death in young children. Immunisation gives people the power to protect your baby from several of these serious childhood diseases.
  • Diseases like measles and whooping cough used to affect so many children. Many children did not survive these diseases or were permanently harmed by them. Now, because of childhood immunisation, we don’t have to lose our children to these diseases, and they don’t have to suffer from them.
  • Fully immunising your children gives them a better chance to develop fully.
