It isn't always easy to be a parent! But when it comes to vaccines, we want to help you stay up-to-date and informed so you can confidently make decisions for your family's health.
At all stages of a child's life, there are important vaccines they may need to receive. By talking with your doctor about your children following the immunization schedule guidelines you can give them a great start to a healthy life.
Here are some resources to help you get started:
In an effort to provide the public with information about the science, safety and importance of vaccines, check out this mobile app, called Vaccines on the Go: What You Should Know, so you can access vaccine information wherever and whenever you need it.
Vaccination rates around the country have dropped significantly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Which is why it's so important to call your child's healthcare provider to schedule yearly well child visits and stay up to date on recommended vaccinations. Don't delay- be the superhero your child looks up to!
Pediatrician offices are open and taking extra precautions to continue to provide well-child care and vaccinations. Don't delay-contact your pediatrician today to schedule your child's appointment! Parents can learn more here.
