About This Rating

Why Is It Important?

Shots, also called vaccines or immunizations, are an easy and proven way to protect your children from serious illness. Without shots, children can die from diseases like measles, tetanus, hepatitis B and meningitis. Good care includes sending reminders when your children need the shots and making it easy to get the shots.
