Why are so many vaccines recommended for babies?

Diseases. Vaccinations for your baby are generally recommended to help prevent serious and deadly illnesses/diseases. The success of immunizations cannot be exaggerated enough--they are safe and the researchers who tried to suggest otherwise have been proven and admitted to being fraudulent.
Progress. The time it takes to bring a safe vaccine from concept to market is measured in decades.Today we have the benefit of research that has reduced or eliminated the diseases that caused so many tragic injury or deaths well into the 1980's. Many illnesses, like bacterial meningitis, polio, whooping cough and measles killed or maimed the youngest babies more than the older ones. .
