August is National Immunization Awareness Month
Vaccines give parents the power to protect their children from serious diseases. One of the most important things a parent can do to protect their child’s health is getting their child vaccinated according to the recommended immunization schedule.
Unvaccinated children are not only at increased risk for disease, but they can also spread disease to others in their play groups, childcare centers, classroom, and communities – including babies who are too young to be fully vaccinated and people who might not be able to receive certain vaccines due to cancer or other health conditions.
