Vaccination is THE WAY to protect your child’s health from harmful diseases that could cause serious complications. Vaccines are safe and effective.


Having your children vaccinated on time is important and helps ensure that they get the protection they need as early as possible. Vaccines strengthen the immune system and prepare your child’s body with the defense it needs to fight against diseases, that your child comes across in everyday life.

Can vaccination have side effects? 

Most children tolerate vaccines well. In some cases, your child may:

  • Have a mild fever
  • Be sleepier than usual
  • Have pain, swelling, or redness where the injection was given
  • Maybe fussy than usual

 

These reactions are normal and usually go away within a few days. You can give your child medication to help with the pain or to lower a fever if needed. Check with our paediatricians if you need advice about which medication to use.
