Immunizations help keep children healthy.

Immunizations, sometimes called “shots” or “vaccinations”, are one of the best ways to help keep your child healthy. Children, especially young ones, are more likely to get very sick from diseases that can be prevented by immunizations. To be fully protected from these diseases, children may need more than one vaccination. For this reason, it takes about seven trips to the doctor to make sure your child has all the recommended shots. Immunizations are required for entry into licensed childcare and school so it is important that you make sure your child is up-to-date.
