Vaccination is a primary preventative method to good health. It is pertinent that parents and guardians ensure their loved ones are properly vaccinated to eliminate diseases and various sicknesses. They undergo careful review and scrutiny by doctors, scientists and the federal government. Most, if not all vaccines are encouraged and supported by the CDC- Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention, American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians.
