As parents, one of the most vital steps we can take to ensure our children’s long-term health is through timely immunisations. At KinderCure, we believe that vaccinations are crucial in protecting children from preventable diseases and promoting overall health.

Why Are Early Childhood Immunisations Important?

Vaccinations are essential for protecting children against serious diseases such as measles, mumps, rubella, polio and whooping cough. These diseases can lead to severe health complications, including long-term disabilities and even death. By ensuring that children are immunised at the recommended ages, we can prevent the spread of these diseases and protect public health.

“Vaccinations are a cornerstone of paediatric health. They not only protect your child but also help in safeguarding the broader community by preventing the spread of infectious diseases,” says Dr. Garima Mengi, our lead paediatrician at KinderCure.

The Science Behind Vaccinations

Vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to recognise and fight specific pathogens. When a child is vaccinated, their body is exposed to a weakened or inactive part of the germ that causes the disease. This exposure does not cause illness but prepares the immune system to respond effectively if exposed to the disease in the future.

Scientific studies consistently support the efficacy and safety of vaccines. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), immunisations prevent 2–3 million deaths each year globally [1]. Moreover, research published in The Lancet shows that vaccination programmes have significantly reduced the incidence of infectious diseases worldwide [2].

Personal Stories from KinderCure

At KinderCure, we have seen firsthand the positive impact of vaccinations. One of our patients, little Aarav(name changed), had a smooth and healthy first year thanks to his timely immunisations. His mother, Priya(name changed), shared, “I was initially anxious about vaccinations, but Dr. Garima’s guidance and the detailed information provided by KinderCure reassured me. Aarav is healthy and thriving and I am so grateful for the care we received.”
