On Tuesday, July 7, 2014 the Ministry of Health, Wellness, Human Services and Gender Relations launched an Immunisation Booklet geared at empowering the general public in particular parents on the importance of immunisation.
Immunisation is an important and effective way to reduce childhood illnesses and death. However some children are not immunised owing to parents:
*Not knowing why immunisation is important
* Lack of understanding as to when to get their children immunised
* Disagreeing to immunisation as a public health measure
* Or have concerns about vaccine safety
