In brief: 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. Following that scare, there were many deaths in children who were not protected against pertussis. 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.

In brief: Very !!!!

Your baby's health and safety is preeminent! vaccines are safe and effective.
Experts spend a great deal of time studying vaccines for effectiveness and safety. Their recommendations, once made should be the guide to which vaccines you should have.A recent study estimates vaccines have prevented over 100, 000, 000 cases of disease in the usa. And prevented millions of deaths!
