Protect Your Child’s Health by Following the Recommended Vaccination Schedule

Posted on December 1, 2016 and filed under Urgent Care Blog

Each year, thousands of American adults and children are sickened, hospitalized, and die from diseases that could have been easily prevented by having the proper vaccination. As a parent, you want to do everything you can to protect your child from getting sick. Health experts say that one of the best ways to protect children from serious diseases is by getting them properly vaccinated. Realize that each individual’s specific immunization needs are based on their age, risk factors, lifestyle, travel, and history of immunizations. To help you stay aware of your child’s required vaccinations, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has prepared an immunization schedule for children of various ages. This immunization schedule spells out all of the required school vaccinations and travel vaccinations, as well as the proper hepatitis vaccine schedule, and other disease vaccinations such as the MMR vaccine for measles, mumps, and rubella. If you haven’t recently checked which vaccinations your child needs, MD Now can show you your child’s current vaccination schedule and conveniently provide the vaccinations that may be missing.

When children aren’t properly vaccinated, they have a higher risk of contracting diseases and spreading them to others in their schools, their families, and their communities. In fact, most schools require children to be up to date on their immunization schedule in order for them to enroll. That’s why it’s essential to get your child all of their necessary school vaccinations and travel vaccinations. Also, pay close attention to the child’s MMR vaccine needs and the hepatitis vaccine schedule.

And just as vaccinations are required needed to keep children healthy, they’re also important for adults. That’s why medical professionals strongly urge all adults to follow the vaccination schedule recommended for them. Call MD Now to find out your family’s immunization needs. Then, you can get the required injections at your local MD Now location.
