PHIL Image 9405
 
ID#:9405
Description:With his mother looking on from behind, this 2006 photograph showed a nurse in the process of administering an intramuscular vaccination in the left shoulder muscle of this young, pre-teen boy.

Immunization is one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their children’s health. Today, we can protect children younger than two years old from 14 serious diseases including:

Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) (bacterial meningitis);Diphtheria; Hepatitis A; Hepatitis B; Influenza; Measles; Mumps; Pertussis (whooping cough); Pneumococcal disease; Polio; Rubella (German measles); Tetanus (lockjaw); Rotavirus; Varicella (chickenpox);

At least one vaccine is needed for each of these diseases, and for some diseases several doses are required for the best protection. Several “combination vaccines” exist in which multiple vaccines are given in a single shot, reducing the number of shots needed.
