Preventable Diseases: The Importance of Childhood Vaccinations for Immunity


Herman Moore :60 PSA



Former professional football player Herman Moore, the Henry Ford Health System, and Pfizer are urging parents to make sure their children receive the CDC-recommended vaccinations. The CDC recommends a vaccination schedule that helps protect against 14 serious diseases before age two, as babies are at a higher risk for vaccine-preventable diseases due to their still-developing immune systems. Thanks to vaccines, diseases such as whooping cough, measles and polio are preventable. Making sure children are up to date on all vaccinations is one of the most important steps in helping keep children healthy.

Did you know?

  • Infants and children under the age of two are at a higher risk of serious illnesses because their immune systems are still developing. That’s why the CDC recommends vaccines to help protect our children from serious illnesses.
  • Still, there are many African-American infants and children who don’t receive the full series of CDC-recommended vaccines. According to the 2016 National Immunization Survey, among African-American children aged 19-35 months, more than 35% have not been fully vaccinated with all the CDC-recommended vaccines.
  • When vaccination rates are low, we see preventable diseases come back into communities.
