If kids are not vaccinated , for all infections that are prevalent in specific age groups, they would be predisposed to infections which can be severe and even lifethreatening.

Vaccination for diseases like measles, rubella, polio, hepatitis, Tetanus, pertussis, etc have great effect in saving lives and also preventing serious infections in susceptible individuals.
