VACCINES OFFERED IN OUR HOSPITAL
The purpose of immunization is to prevent disease. Immunization saves more than two million lives every year but more than two million people “still die due to lack of access to vaccines.
Disease prevention is the most cost-effective health-care intervention available. Because immunization helps to inhibit the spread of disease, many people can be protected from illness and death.
With the exception of clean drinking water, no human endeavor rivals immunization in combating infectious diseases and reducing mortality rates.
