This is National Infant Immunization Week, and a new Center for Disease Control study shows that childhood vaccinations not only prevent disease and death, but also result in billions of dollars in savings. The Minnesota Department of Health’s Kris Ehresmann says that when we immunize children across the country, we are preventing approximately 42,000 early deaths and 20-million cases of disease. And the study found that the net savings to society is $69-billion. Ehresmann says that $1 spent on routine childhood immunization, on average, results in $10 in direct and indirect savings to society over the child’s lifetime.
