Vaccines are safe

Some parents are worried about immunizations. Vaccines are safe. Below are some common myths:

Myth: Vaccines can make you sick.

Fact: A low fever, soreness around the injection and aches are common. Those mild side effects show that our body is getting ready to fight the disease.

Myth: Vaccinations can cause autism.

Fact: No credible scientific study has ever linked autism to immunizations.

Myth: Vaccines can cause the disease they are supposed to prevent.

Fact: There are no vaccines that contain the exact live germ that can cause that disease. Most vaccines contain only a copy of part of the germ, which helps the body make antibodies that fight the disease.
