August is National Immunization Awareness Month.

  1. Vaccines are very important for all of us.  The CDC (Center for Disease Control) has a recommended vaccine schedule for kids, teens & adults.  Most day cares, schools & workplaces require vaccines. 
  2.  Vaccines help prevent children, teens & adults from contracting diseases that can cause illness and even death.  There is a lot of information on the web about vaccines.  The important thing to remember is that there have been multiple studies that show that vaccines work & are safe.
  3. Vaccines can seem scary but in the long run they help us all stay healthy.
  4. School will be starting again soon so please book your well child/teen appointment and obtain vaccines.
