  To simplify an incredibly complex process, an immunization is the deliberate action of making a person immune to an infection or disease. While a person of any age is at risk for acquiring infection, newborns have an immature immune system that puts them at an even greater risk. Is there an opportunity give more immunizations during the neonatal period (the first 28 days of life)? Birth is often a reliable point of healthcare contact and offers a great opportunity for healthcare providers to provide education and early protection for young children through immunization.
