Baby & Child Vaccinations

Will you let decades of controversy prevent the possibility of your child's life being saved?

FACT - IMMUNISATION CAN SAVE YOUR CHILD'S LIFE 

Diseases that once injured or killed millions have been brought under control with safe
and effective vaccines, and in the case of smallpox, eradicated completely.
 

FACT - IMMUNISATION IS SAFE

Before registration, vaccines undergo intensive trials to prove that the benefits are far greater
than any possible adverse effects or discomfort.
 

FACT - IMMUNISATION CAN PROTECT OTHERS

Sadly, many people don't get immunised, for a number of reasons, and fall prey to infectious
diseases, but by making sure that those around them are vaccinated, the rest of the community
can be protected.
 

FACT - IMMUNISATION CAN SAVE MONEY

Some vaccine-preventable diseases can result in prolonged or even permanent disability, requiring
ongoing medical care, which can create a huge financial toll on family members. And which could have been avoided through immunisation.
