Why This Indicator Matters

The health of the whole community is protected when we ensure that our children are immunized. Diseases that once spread quickly and affected thousands of children and adults are not largely contained by vaccines. Child vaccination is one of the most cost-effective preventative health measures. Vaccines are important because they not only protect individual children against dangerous diseases, they protect communities by slowing down or preventing disease outbreaks and protecting communities by helping to protect children who are not able to be vaccinated. In other words, vaccination protects not only the recipient of the vaccine, but everyone in the community. This helps to contain infectious diseases, including polio, measles, diphtheria and many others.
