Why Vaccinate: Vaccines strengthen our immune systems and help create antibodies that protect us from diseases. It is much safer and better for our bodies to learn to fight diseases through vaccination than by catching the diseases and treating them. Once our immune system knows how to fight a disease it can protect us for many years!
