Immunization infants how important is immunization for infant children and what are the risk

Very : Very important. This is demonstrated by the recent outbreaks of measles in unimmunized children. The mortality from measles is about 2%. The adverse reaction to the measles vaccination about 1:100, 000. You can surely do the math. No studies have confirmed the folk lore that immunizations cause autism.

Anyone doubting the efficacy of vaccination should visit an old grave yard and see how many children died in infancy in the first half of the last century before antibiotics and vaccines were available to children. ...Read more

Is there any correlation between immunizations and eczema in children?

Not really: Unless there is a specific component within the vaccine that your child is allergic to, then vaccines should not cause flare up of eczema. Your child is exposed to numerous allergens every single day, and it's likely these are the triggers. Work with an allergist to determine what your child's triggers are, and talk with your pediatrician about maximizing skin care to avoid flare-ups of the eczema. ...Read more
