2. SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
Many people doesn’t prefer vaccination because they think that it can cause lots of side effects. But vaccines are given to children only after they have been properly tested and analysed by scientists and doctors. While injecting the vaccine, there may be minimal pain and swelling, but that is nothing compared to the pain and trauma of the diseases that the vaccines prevent. Severe side effects like allergic reactions are extremely rare. The disease preventing benefits of vaccines are way greater than some of the minor side effects that may be seen.
3. BENEFICIAL IN THE LONG RUN
