When facing a vicious infection, there is nothing as effective as a vaccine to protect yourself. We know this from both historic public health victories, like the battle against polio, as well as modern ones, like the Hib and pneumococcal vaccines that have saved 1.45 million children’s lives since 2000. As a pediatrician, I know the benefits of vaccines for each of my patients. Every day in my practice, I talk with parents about all the vaccines their children need to stay healthy. And it’s why I am counseling parents to get their children the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as they are eligible. It is why I am vaccinating my own children as well.
