Vaccinations help keep children from contracting potentially life-threatening infectious diseases during different stages of their lives. Here is what you can do as a parent:
Protect Your Child
Children are most vulnerable when they are born, and they depend on you to make the right choices to protect them. It is critical to stick to the vaccination schedule provided by your child’s doctor. No matter the age, preventing dangerous diseases outweighs any possible side effects such as slight pain, swelling, or low-grade fever that your child may experience. Take the proper action to build your child’s immune system during their critical developmental stages.
School-aged children come in contact with many other children, leaving room for diseases to spread if children have not been vaccinated. It is important to keep your child’s vaccination records up to date, store them in a safe place, and share them with the school or other programs. Your community is relying on you to take the steps in protecting your child, and in turn, protect those around them.
