Achieving the full advantages of immunizations begins with patient education. It is critical to understand thoroughly the statistics, necessity and importance of timeliness to complete each immunization series. All childhood vaccines are given in two or more doses. Vaccines stimulate a child’s immune system, thus producing antibodies against potentially fatal infections. Vaccines do not treat diseases. The benefit of routine vaccination prevents them.
