For parents, protecting children from harm is their top priority. Each year, 33,000 lives are saved and 14 million cases of disease are prevented when all the children born in a given year are fully vaccinated. It is facts like these from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that inspire Barbara Ottis, RN, immunization specialist at Park Nicollet Clinic-Meadowbrook.

According to Ottis, immunizations are one of the most important ways parents can protect their children against serious disease. "Immunizations not only help protect vaccinated individuals, they protect entire communities by reducing the spread of infectious agents," she says. Vaccinations also have been proven to lessen health care costs. "Each year, routine childhood immunizations save $10 billion in direct medical costs and more than $40 billion in indirect societal costs," Ottis says.
