Immunization for infants
Infants are particularly vulnerable to infections; that is why it is very important to protect them through immunization
Today, most children in the United Arab Emirates lead much healthier lives while parents live with much less worry over dangerous diseases during childhood. This is thanks to “Immunization”, as it has turned out to be one of the biggest medical breakthroughs, making potentially life-threatening childhood diseases rare today. Often called vaccines or shots, immunization is a simple yet effective way of protecting children early in life. It works by triggering the baby’s immune system (a germ-fighting machine) to build up antibodies that effectively respond to certain infections and diseases. So if the immunized baby comes in contact with these diseases, their immune systems are strong enough to fight against them and help protect their bodies from contracting the disease or greatly reducing its severity.
