What Can Happen When Children Are Not Immunized?

Immunization is the only protection children have against these childhood diseases. These diseases have the potential for serious or fatal complications, including breathing problems, brain damage, meningitis and paralysis. Some parents do not get their children immunized because they are not aware that these diseases still pose a serious threat to the health of their children. As long as even a few cases of a disease occur, children and adults who are not properly immunized are at risk for catching the disease and spreading it to others.
