This sweet picture is of my grandpa. I immunize because I am so grateful to live in a time where so many horrible childhood diseases are preventable. My grandparents were not so lucky. They lost their two oldest children to Polio when they were only 6 and 4, just two weeks apart from one another. This was only one year before the vaccine was introduced. I immunize because to not do it means that they along with many other children died in vain.
