Vaccines are very much necessary to getting children off to a healthy initiation of life. Because vaccination programs of the 20th and 21st century have been so successful, a number of parents today have never seen many vaccine-preventable diseases that were once common. Even they don’t realize that those infectious diseases could reemerge.
Infectious diseases that used to be common in children are polio, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), rubella (German measles), and chickenpox – are can be prevent by vaccines which are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Vaccines can prevent transmissible diseases that once killed or harmed many children, infants and adults. The FDA ensures that the vaccines children receive are safe and effective for their health.
