The Importance of Vaccinating Your Child
posted: Mar. 01, 2021.
Your pediatricians in Longwood, FL, can help keep your child healthy with vaccinations.
Vaccinating your child is one of the easiest and most important ways you can safeguard your child’s health. Childhood vaccinations protect your child against serious and even deadly diseases and conditions like the flu, measles, hepatitis, and many others.
Your pediatrician wants to partner with you to make sure your child is current on required vaccinations. Dr. Jag Ambwani, and Dr. Dolly Ubhrani, of Longwood Pediatrics in Longwood, FL, offer comprehensive pediatric medical care, including vaccinations, to keep your child healthy.
Children’s immune systems are often not as robust as adults. That means your child may suffer the effects of a disease or medical condition more severely. Your child may be much more prone to developing complications related to a disease or medical condition. Routine vaccinations protect your child.
Remember that when your child is protected from contagious diseases, it also protects your child’s teachers, playmates, and others your child comes into contact with. When your child is vaccinated, it also protects you!
Vaccinations are more than just a good idea. They are also required for your child to attend daycare or school. You must show proof your child is current on vaccinations, and your pediatrician can help you get the vaccination records you need.
This is a list of required vaccinations published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) from birth to 18 years of age:
- (Hep B) Hepatitis B
