When parents do not vaccinate their children, they also increase the risk of the diseases spreading to other children. Dr. Saad Saad believes that vaccinated children are much healthier as adults and it also helps them protect future generations too.
Another monetary benefit of vaccination is that parents can save time and money that goes into treating their child since they will get sick less often. Also, insurance companies also ask for fewer premiums if everyone in a family is vaccinated for necessary vaccines.
Dr. Saad Saad also shares some essential life lessons with the youths of today to allow them to achieve their dreams. One of the advice that he offers is not to accept just anything that they get. If they are looking for success, they should not settle with being mediocre and work hard to get what they want. Anyone can achieve anything if he or she put his or her body and mind into it.
Many people also become lazy and leave things for tomorrow that should have been done today. Only those who are active and do not wait for tomorrow to get things accomplished are the ones who are successful eventually. All of these life lessons are not what was taught to him in classrooms, but these are what he learned from his 47 years in the medical industry and with experience.
