Immunization or vaccination protects the child from serious illness and complications of vaccine-preventable diseases. It is one of the most successful and cost-effective means to help children grow into healthy adults.
There are 25 diseases that can be prevented by vaccines including diphtheria, measles, pertussis, pneumonia, polio, rotavirus diarrhoea, rubella and tetanus.
