Vaccination

The Importance of Vaccines as Disease Prevention

There are measures in Public Health that have had an extraordinary impact on the health of the citizens all over the world over the years and one of them is vaccination.

But we constantly ask ourselves: What are vaccines and their effects?

Vaccines are one of the health measures that has produced the greatest benefit and continues to produce humanity, preventing diseases that previously caused major epidemics, deaths and sequelae. Vaccines benefit both vaccinated and unvaccinated and susceptible people living in their environment (group immunity).

Does vaccination have risks?

Vaccines ARE SAFE. We always have to keep in mind that the risks of vaccination will always be lower than its benefits and that it is not better to suffer from the disease than to receive the vaccine: with vaccination we acquire protection by saving the disease.

Vaccines are very effective and safe medications. No advance of medicine has managed to save as many lives as vaccines, thanks to them the diseases that were perceived as threats cease to exist or highly diminish.

Their safety is very high, and they are the pharmaceutical products that are required to have higher safety standards: all vaccines that are currently administered have clearly demonstrated their efficacy and safety.

What should I do if my child has a serious reaction?

If you think your child is experiencing a persistent or serious reaction, call your doctor or take your child to our CSI medical office or emergency room immediately. Write what happened, as well as the date and time it happened. Ask your doctor, nurse or the Department of Health to complete a Vaccine Adverse Reaction Report (VAERS) form or call 1-800-338-2382.
