Why to vaccinate

Our practice believes all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC because they are a safe and effective method of preventing disease. Some parents have concerns about vaccines, but vaccines are thoroughly tested and must pass very rigorous testing and approval by the FDA before they are administered to the public. It’s normal to worry about your child having to get a shot but vaccines are entirely safe!

How do vaccines work?

Vaccines boost the body’s natural defenses by an injection of a dead or weakened form of the infection – just enough to trigger the immune system to start producing antibodies without causing an infection. The shot is administered in your pediatrician’s office and you can stay with your child. Once your child builds up their immunity (within a few weeks of the shot) the body can maintain its defense and prevent future infections.

See your pediatricians in Moline, IL, to have your child vaccinated for their health and future. Immunizations help protect others, too, like those with weakened immune systems who can’t be vaccinated. When a majority of people are protected from a virus this is called herd immunity and helps to stop the spread of diseases.

Franklin Pediatrics is here for you in Moline, IL, when your child needs immunizations. We also provide physical exams, ADHD screening, and Wart removal in the Quad Cities. Dr. Nafees Khan, Dr. David Bunker, and the dedicated medical staff can help. Contact us for an appointment at (309) 762-0777.
