We are a one-stop destination for childcare services that includes neonatal, paediatric adolescent and immunisation services for children up to 16 years.
Vaccinations work by exposing our body to an infection so that we develop immunity to it. Some vaccinations are given orally, others by injection. The advantage of a vaccine is that instead of getting the full-blown disease, we can get immunized by taking in a weak version of the infection. So we get immune to a disease without first having to be sick.
If your child is immunized against an illness, the chances of getting that illness are reduced to a great extent since your child's body has already made antibodies against it. Immunization is the most effective method of protecting your child from certain serious infections.
