    Vaccinations are one of the safest and most cost-effective ways to prevent infectious diseases. While Texas has worked to vaccinate more young children, coverage rates for this age group are not improving in Texas or the United States. In fact, overall rates may actually be declining. Much of this is due to parental decisions not to vaccinate their children, exposing entire communities to potential outbreaks.

    Vaccines remain one of the greatest success stories in public health. Numerous changes in vaccine production over the past decades have resulted in safer vaccines with reduced side effects. To continue this progress, agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) coordinate research across all stages of vaccine development and implementation to ensure that immunizations are safe and effective.
