Life, Liberty and...: Child vaccines are good for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Vaccines will let him run free in the playground, giggling happily all day, and will save his life if particular bad germs catch him. Infanrix protects against Dipht.-Tetanus-Pertussis (1 booster after each 10 yrs), Polio (some adults get 1 booster), Hep B (boosters in special cases), Haemophilus (some elderly get 1 booster).
