Immunization Resources for Elementary Educators

Immunization protects us from many harmful diseases.  Diseases can have very serious complications, even death. Germs that cause disease travel easily throughout the world. They are easily spread person to person and can live on surfaces such as taps, counter tops, door handles and skin for several hours, even days.
