Every parent wants their child to be healthy. One of the best ways is to make sure they are fully vaccinated. Vaccines protect young children against 14 diseases.
Many of the recommended vaccinations are required for school attendance. Adolescent vaccines boost that protection and prevent two other infections. The HPV vaccine is now recommended for boys and girls at the 11 to12 year-old well-child visit.
Keep accurate records of your child's immunizations and follow the recommended schedule. In addition, periodically check with your child's health care provider for any vaccine updates.
