Vaccines for children

This post is also available in: Svenska

Vaccinating children protects them from serious infectious diseases. Every child can receive free vaccinations against eleven diseases at the children’s medical center in Sweden. Girls can also receive the HPV vaccine against cervical cancer at school as well.

Many parents vaccinate their children without even thinking about it. That’s fine. But for those who prefer to do their own research, then this website is for you. I am a Pediatric Specialist with a PhD in childhood vaccinations. Everything I write on this page is based on scientific facts from extensive research. Feel free to contact me if you want more information.
