National Immunization Awareness Month & the Importance of Immunizations

National Immunization Awareness Month & the Importance of Immunizations

One of the most important things a person can do to protect themselves and others from vaccine-preventable diseases and outbreaks, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, is checking their vaccination record and vaccinating according to the recommended immunization schedule.

Outlined below are the recommended immunizations by age group.

Baby Immunizations (Birth-3 years old):

Babies are born with immune systems that can fight most germs, but there are some deadly diseases they can’t handle. That’s why they need vaccines to strengthen their immune system.

Child Immunizations (4-12 years old):

Without vaccines, children are at risk for getting seriously ill and suffering pain, disability, and even death from diseases like measles and whooping cough. It is always better to prevent a disease than to treat it after it occurs.

Teenager Immunizations (13-18 years old):

Parents can send their preteens and teenagers to middle school, high school and college protected by vaccinations against these four preventable diseases.
