What is Immunisation?
Immunisation is an effective and safe way to prevent children and adults from getting sick from serious illnesses, some of which can be deadly.
Immunisation is done using vaccines, to give people immunity to an infectious disease. Vaccines, are given to children or adults, often as injections, to fight future infections caused by certain viruses or bacteria. The vaccines contain inactive components or weakened versions of these viruses or bacteria, to provide immunity without causing disease.
In fact, immunisation not only helps protect individual children but also protects the broader community by minimising the spread of disease.
