Your Child's Health

Ensuring Your Child's Health | Immunizations

Vaccines are safe, and usually covered by insurance.

Vaccines are usually required by schools and childcare centers.  Vaccinating your child is a great way to protect your child. Follow the recommended immunization schedule for vaccines. Ask your doctor for details! 

Why immunize? Media messages on immunization can create confusion. Do not hesitate to talk to your provider about any concerns you have. Thanks to vaccines, some diseases are becoming rare due to the success of vaccinations.

What would happen if we stopped vaccinating? Diseases that are almost unknown in the U.S. would stage a comeback. Before long, we would see epidemics of diseases that are rare.

We vaccinate to protect future generations. We vaccinate to protect our children. We also vaccinate to protect our grandchildren and their grandchildren. Vaccinations are one of the best ways to prevent serious diseases such as polio, measles, mumps, diphtheria, tetanus, chickenpox, pneumonia, meningitis, and hepatitis A and B.

Vaccinating your child on the recommended schedule will provide protection into adulthood.
