When I am talking with parents of young children, I often remind them how important it is that they take their children to be vaccinated against serious childhood diseases. I have noticed that there are parents here in our community who don't do this because sometimes the children have mild reactions to the vaccines such as being agitated, not sleep well or having a slight fever. What I tell them is that they should have their children vaccinated because it's in their best interest. The vaccines prevent children from becoming sick repeatedly. So, even if a child gets a little sick due to a normal reaction to a vaccine, that is fine, there is nothing wrong with that.
If children are vaccinated when they are little babies, they will benefit from this for their whole lives. Children who are not vaccinated are vulnerable to very serious diseases and they tend to be sick a lot more. I tell parents they need to have their children vaccinated so that their children can grow up healthy and happy.
