Immunizations

Immunizations

All children in the U.S. should receive a series of vaccines in order to prevent the spread of dangerous — though often no-longer prevalent — diseases. Immunizations aid the immune system to recognize and attack diseases before they can cause problems. Some immunizations are given in a single injection while others require several injections over a period of time. Schedule your child’s immunizations according to the immunization charts in the frame (you may need to click on show all content in browser.)

Be sure to keep immunization records, since children often need to present them at school.

A great web site that deals with vaccine issues is immunize.org. They provide a wonderful wealth of information.
