Influenza and pneumonia are among the top 10 causes of death for older adults. Emphasis of the importance of the vaccination has certainly helped, but continues to have serious ramifications on peoples’ livelihoods. All vaccines have been rigorously tested and reviewed by scientists, doctors and professionals. The development is a long, arduous and complex process that often lasts over 10-15 years.

Immunisation protects against a large number of diseases that are considered dangerous. It effectively teaches the immune system by mimicking a natural infection. The body cannot tell that the vaccine is weakened, and it engulfs the virus as it were dangerous. It then creates antibodies, leaving a series of cells to fight against that particular infection.

It is extremely important for all parents to immunise their child and to seek vaccinations for themselves when travelling abroad. Like any medication, vaccinations sometimes have side effects. More often than not, it can be a good thing, as it shows that the vaccine has had an effect upon the immune system. Protect yourself and your loved ones from deadly diseases, the importance is overwhelming.
