Childhood Vaccinations

Primary immunisation is the best method of protecting your child right from birth against many serious diseases. Prevention is always better than cure , and the risk from serious disease is far greater than any minor side effects of immunisation.

Immunisation stimulates the body to produce antibodies against disease. The vaccines are made from weak or inactivated forms of the disease, so that the immune system is stimulated to produce antibodies without being attacked. Ireland has a very good childhood vaccination programme It is under constant review by the HSE and Public Health.

Safety

Worried about so many vaccines together , or developing autism ? Vaccines are rigorlously tested. The Health Products Regulatory Authority carefully evaluates all medicines and products on the market to the highest standards in Europe.There has been no evidence of any link between childhood vaccination and autism or asthma or any other disease. These conditions can become apparent around the same time as vaccination is being completed and have mistakenly been linked as a cause. The best for your child is to immunize. It is vitally important to complete the schedule entirely as full protection is afforded only after completion of all courses.
