The best way to keep your child healthy is with preventative care. Part of preventative care is immunizations. There is overwhelming scientific data that vaccination saves lives and helps to keep children healthy. Immunizations are vital when it comes to protecting your child from germs that can be found while they’re playing with other kids or are just out in public. Because of these vaccines, many diseases no longer need to be a parents' concern.
Getting your child immunized also helps the community in the long run by protecting others who aren’t able to be vaccinated for various reasons. It also helps with herd immunity to keep these illnesses from coming back and being more impactful on all of us. Immunizations can also save you money by helping you avoid extra visits to the doctor.
From birth until entrance to kindergarten, you should expect to visit your child’s pediatrician more than once a year for checkups and to maintain their immunization schedule. Some of the common immunizations include:
- Hepatitis B
- Measles, mumps, rubella
- Hepatitis A
- Human papillomavirus
- Meningococcal meningitis
- Haemophilus type B
