Vaccination is an easy and effective way of preventing serious infectious disease. It is the most important thing we can do to protect ourselves and our children against ill health.
They prevent up to 3 million deaths worldwide every year.
Vaccines teach your immune system how to create antibodies that protect you from diseases.
It’s much safer for your immune system to learn this through vaccination than by catching the diseases and treating them.
Once your immune system knows how to fight a disease, it can often protect you for many years.

They are one of the most important ways of protecting individuals and the community from serious diseases.
Most immunizations are given during childhood. Some are given more than once to make sure your child is fully immune to that particular disease – with each vaccination, the immune system creates a stronger response. This ‘top-up’ is called a booster.
Normally, after a completed vaccination programme, your child should have the following protection against disease:
- Lifelong protection against polio
- Probable lifelong protection against measles, mumps, rubella and meningitis C
- At least 10 years’ protection against diphtheria and tetanus
- At least three against whooping cough
