Do you know how the government can save $40 billion annually?

Immunizations is the answer!

Morbidity for vaccine-preventable diseases has been reduced
99+ percent reduction since the introduction of vaccines
7 vaccines (DTaP, Td, Hib, polio, MMR, hepatitis B, and varicella)
prevent 14+ million cases of disease
prevent 33,500+ deaths over the lifetime of children born each year
prevent the need to take time off from work, seek care for, and tend to the needs of sick patients
annual savings exceed $40 billion

For moms who don't vaccinate think again!

  • So I should risk killing my child (he had a bad reaction that almost did kill him at 6 months old) so the government can save money? Look at the cost of the possible side effects of those same vaccines and see what kind of money you are really saving.
