Dr. Numb – Topical Numbing Cream for Immunization

Immunization is must for each one of us to strengthen our immune system and prevent the outbreak of diseases which may become chronic. Immunization is the way to a healthy life which is free of diseases. That’s why health professionals, medical researchers, and professional medical organizations (such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Practice Physicians) strictly recommend immunization.

Immunization not just protects one person but it also protects the ones around him/her. For example: If somebody in a household gets chicken pox then others are also likely to get it. But if everyone is immunized against it then it increases the safety.

Since prevention is better than cure therefore, it is must to get immunized to prevent infectious disease.

Importance of Immunization

  • Vaccinations are the best way to prevent serious complications of the diseases which have no medical treatments.
  • Although people with impaired immune systems cannot develop immunity after being vaccinated but if others are vaccinated they can be saved from the deadly diseases.
  • The cost of immunization is much less than the cost of treatment of a particular disease. Immunization can also prevent the disease from reaching a complicated stage.
  • If more and more people are made aware about the importance of immunization it decreases risk of an epidemic and thus saving large communities.

Important Facts About Immunization
