Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Vaccination. Hand of nurse injects vaccine into the arm of a smiling young girl. Vaccines are killed or weakened doses of microorganisms injected into the body to stimulate the immune system. They provide protection against many infectious diseases. This girl, aged between 8 and 12 years, may be being vaccinated against German measles (rubella). Protection against German measles is important as infection during pregnancy can cause severe disease in the baby. The girl might alternatively be receiving vaccines in preparation for a foreign holiday. Yellow fever, hepatitis A and tetanus are some of the diseases for which protection is often needed.
