There’s no doubt that HIB disease is severe. But now that this particular form of meningitis is extremely rare, how important is the vaccine for infants today? On the one hand, continued vaccination helps keep the disease out of our population, and helps protect each infant individually. But on the other hand, since the disease is so rare, can parents safely skip this vaccine in their babies? There’s really no right or wrong answer to this question. Most parents choose the vaccine, but some don’t. The ultimate choice is up to you!
