Between 2001 and 2010, the United States saw big declines in the number of cases of vaccine-preventable diseases. Because of this, vaccines are one of the top public health achievements of the decade.
For kids born between 1994 and 2018, vaccination will prevent an estimated 419 million illnesses, 26.8 million hospitalizations, and 936,000 deaths in their lifetimes.
About 780,000 people die each year from hepatitis B complications. Many mothers don’t know they are infected and can give the disease to their babies. Additionally, about 9 of every 10 infants who get hepatitis B from their mothers become chronically infected.
Before the chickenpox vaccine was available, about 50 children died, and more than 7000 children were hospitalized each year in the U.S.
Despite a national MMR vaccination coverage level of nearly 92%, one child in 12 in the United States is not receiving his or her first dose of MMR vaccine on time. Measles outbreaks still happen in the U.S. and vaccines are the best protection for your child.
New pneumococcal vaccines were introduced in 2000 and 2010. Since then, they have helped lower the estimated number of cases of invasive pneumococcal disease in young children by almost 90%. Outbreaks can still happen, but vaccines can help protect your child from 14 diseases, including pneumococcal disease, by age 2.
During National Infant Immunization Week (NIIW) 2017, parents, health care professionals, and partners from around the world shared why vaccination is important to them using #ivax2protect. This animated graphic highlights tweets from the #ivax2protect Twitter Storm hosted by CDC & American Academy of Pediatrics.
