Pediatrics
In brief: Many
In the first 12 months of live, babies get vaccines to protect them from: diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis b, streptococcus pneumoniae, rotovirus, polio, haemophilus influenzae type b and influenza.
Each of these diseases are still present somewhere and will quickly make a comeback, resulting in severe illness and death, if people choose not to vaccinate. Keep your baby healthy!
