Immunisation protects and saves lives
The number one way of preventing disease is to control it. Immunisation programs are the safest and most effective way of avoiding the spread of diseases in the workplace, businesses, communities, and schools. It is a simple way of protecting yourself and your family, and can save lives.
Immunisation works by triggering the immune system to fight against diseases. Vaccinations are the safest way of producing an immune response in the body without causing illness.
When you’ve come in contact with a virus, your immune system rapidly produces antibodies to destroy it. Click here for more information.
