Immunisation

about us
Immunisation is a safe and effective way of protecting you and your child against serious diseases.
Immunisation protects you from harmful diseases before you come into contact with them. It uses your body’s natural defences to build resistance to specific diseases. If you come into contact with that disease in the future, your immune system remembers it, and responds quickly to prevent the disease from developing.
After immunisation, you are far less likely to catch the disease you have been immunised against. If you do catch the disease, your illness will be less severe. Your recovery will be quicker than an unimmunised person’s recovery.
The purpose of immunisation is to prevent people from acquiring infections and to protect them against the short and longer-term complications of those infections, which can include chronic illnesses, such as cancer, and death. 
Vaccines work by stimulating the body’s defence mechanisms against infection. These defence mechanisms are collectively referred to as the immune system. Vaccines mimic and sometimes improve on the protective response normally mounted by the immune system after an actual infection. The great advantage of immunisation over natural infections is that immunisation has a much lower risk of adverse outcomes.
