Today, children in the United States routinely receive vaccines that protect them from more than a dozen diseases such as measles, polio, tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (commonly known as whooping cough). Most of these diseases are now at their lowest levels in history, thanks to years of immunization. Children must be vaccinated before they are allowed to attend school and vaccines work best when they are given at certain ages.
Vaccines help make children immune to serious diseases without them getting sick first. Without a vaccine, a child must actually get a disease in order to become immune to the germ that causes it.
