Immunization is one of the most important ways to protect individuals and communities against serious infectious diseases and their consequences. Widespread immunization has virtually eliminated many serious diseases - such as polio, measles, meningitis caused by Haemophilus influenza type B (Hib), congenital rubella, diphtheria, and smallpox - that were once responsible for millions of infections and thousands of deaths each year. It is always better to prevent a disease than to have to treat it.
