Vaccines

All information about vaccines for children and vaccines for adults

In medicine in general, and in the field of pediatrics in particular, vaccines (along with the discovery of antibiotics) are perhaps the greatest invention in the world of medicine that has contributed and continues to contribute to a significant reduction in diseases some of which are unpleasant and some fatal.

The purpose of this chapter is to present information on important vaccines, from influenza to measles, from meningococcus B to the live attenuated polio vaccine.

I hope this section of the site will give answers to parents looking for information on this core topic.
