The vaccination schedule has been established so that children get the proper doses of vaccine into their blood stream to stop them from contracting serious cases of childhood diseases. Many of the vaccinations that are given to protect children from things like measles, mumps, and chicken pox, are given in multiple doses. Each dose contains a small amount of the vaccine and the children grow immune to the disease over a period of time as the medicine is introduced at increasing levels into their bloodstream.
