August means one thing for many parents: back-to-school prep.
What better time is there to ensure your son or daughter’s long-term
health than by scheduling them for their yearly immunizations?
Immunizations are a way for you to say to your child,
“I will never let your health get in the way of your dreams.”
Don’t wait - this is the busiest season! Vaccines will not only safeguard
children against frequent disruptions like the seasonal influenza but
will also protect them against the possibilities of rarer diseases.
Every year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) releases
an immunization schedule that will keep you and your kids on track.
You can visit their website for online tools and useful information that will assure your child has
a healthy and uninterrupted school year.
