VACCINATION

VACCINES are biological substances that contain part of the infection-causing germ in a weakened form and help in improving immunity to a particular disease. When a child is given a vaccine, their body responds by making antibodies, the same way in which the body does when there is an infection. These antibodies then stay in the child’s body and protect them against the actual disease. This is how the child becomes immune to a particular disease by producing antibodies. Immunisation is the process through which a person becomes resistant to an infectious disease by being administered a vaccine. We at Motherhood are ready to provide all the necessary vaccinations and the best pediatric services and pediatricians in Bangalore for your child
