Make sure vaccines are up to date
Vaccines are designed to prevent your children from getting diseases. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends routine vaccination to prevent 17 vaccine-preventable diseases that occur in infants, children, adolescents, or adults. Since children may be exposed to a variety of people and pathogens while at school, it’s a good idea to make sure they’re up to date on their shots.
