False Beliefs That Immunizations are Dangerous!


Just like any medical procedure, there are definitely risks when getting a vaccine. These risks though, tend to include tenderness and swelling, with a small chance of running a fever. There is also the possibility of having a more serious reaction, but this possibility is so minor, it actually happens less than once in a million. The benefits of receiving a vaccine for any sort of disease/infection, greatly outweighs the negatives. As a society, we can lead a healthier, safer life by getting immunized.
