Immunisation (or vaccination) is an important public health measure which aids in the protection against a wide range of preventable diseases and infections which can cause significant sickness in individuals. Prior to widespread availability of immunisations many preventable diseases (such as Measles) could result in serious infections, disability or even death. As a result, immunisation and vaccination play a vital role in your health and that of your community.
