Why is it important to get vaccines on time?
Childhood vaccinations plummeted in March after COVID-19 was declared a national emergency, leaving many children vulnerable to preventable diseases. The U.S. is already seeing the impacts of COVID-19. A recent article reported an alarming:
Vaccinations can protect against 14 serious childhood diseases, including measles, influenza (flu), tetanus, polio and whooping cough.
Parents should continue to prioritize getting their children and teens scheduled for routine vaccinations and well-child visits, in spite of anxieties over COVID.
