[Announcer] This program is presented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Parents - protect your children’s health by making sure they’re up-to-date on all recommended vaccines. Immunizations are available for 14 diseases, including polio, measles, mumps, and tetanus. Young children are receiving vaccinations at record levels in the US. However, recent outbreaks of measles and pertussis underscore the importance of parents remaining vigilant in ensuring their children receive all vaccinations on time. Delaying vaccinations can put your child at risk for serious, even fatal, diseases. If your children’s immunizations aren’t up-to-date, talk with their health care provider.
