Be Wise - Immunize!

It is always better to prevent a disease than to treat it after it occurs.


Diseases that used to be common in this country and around the world, including polio, measles, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), rubella (German measles), mumps, tetanus, rotavirus and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) can now be prevented by vaccination. Over the years, vaccines have prevented countless cases of disease and saved millions of lives.
