  • Question: What is an Immunization?


    An immunization, also known as vaccination, is the medical administration of a substance called a vaccine to stimulate a person's immune system and protect them from specific diseases. The vaccine typically contains a weakened or inactivated form of a pathogen (such as a virus or bacterium) or a piece of the pathogen (like a protein or sugar), which cannot cause the disease, but triggers an immune response.

  • Question: Why Are Immunizations Important?


    The immunization is one of the most significant public health inventions in history, leading to the prevention of numerous deadly diseases, such as polio, measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough, influenza and many more. Vaccination programs play a crucial role in reducing the prevalence of these diseases and protecting populations around the world.

  • Question: Which Immunizations Are Required for School?


    The specific immunizations required for school can vary depending on your home country, state, province, school district or institution. Immunization requirements are typically in place to protect students and the broader community from preventable diseases. These requirements aim to ensure that enough of the population is immunized to maintain herd immunity and reduce the risk of outbreaks.
