The purpose of public health is to prevent illness. It’s much easier and more cost-effective to prevent a disease than to treat it. That’s exactly what immunizations aim to perform.
Immunizations protect us from severe diseases and also prevent the spread of those infections to others. Over the years immunizations have countered epidemics of once common infectious diseases such as measles, mumps, and whooping cough. And because of immunizations we’ve seen the near eradication of others, such as polio and smallpox.
