immunize? Immunization protects children and the
community on the whole from disease. The objective is to
immunize as many people as possible, which leads to
fewer and fewer people catching a disease and eventually
causing the disease to disappear.
Children's immunization records must be kept up to date
to prevent children from coming into contact with
specific illnesses. Always check immunization records
prior to registering a child in your child care
