Author information

  • 1Department of Paediatrics, Division of Infectious Diseases, The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario.

Abstract

Vaccines prevent serious infections by stimulating the immune system to identify and destroy invading organisms rapidly before they have a chance to cause disease. Armed with the scientific facts to refute current misconceptions surrounding vaccines and the infant's immune system, nurses can provide parents with the answers they need.
