The vaccinations schedules for the various illnesses might vary. The diseases against which vaccines are mostly provided these days are Hepatitis A and B, typhoid, cholera, H1N1, Rubella, Mumps, Meningitis, Measles and Chicken Pox and even Cervical Cancer. For example the Hepatitis B is a three shot series and they have to be rendered at required intervals. While some of these illnesses do have cures today, as compared to a few decades back, the mortality rate is very high and they can indeed prove to be fatal in babies. Moreover, the costs of treating the disease after one has already been affected by it are abnormally high, not to mention that it also means that the affected person as well as the family members have to go through a period of distress and trauma. It is a far better idea to follow the schedule and go for the required vaccines on time.

Those who have an already weak immune system would be highly affected by them and it is all the more important to ensure they are taken on time.
