People who receive vaccines protect both themselves and others. Many diseases that were once common in the United States have been controlled or eradicated by vaccines, including polio, measles, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), rubella (German measles), mumps, tetanus, and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). Vaccine-preventable diseases have a costly impact, resulting in doctors’ visits, hospitalizations, and premature deaths. Sick children can also cause parents to lose time from work.[i]
