Vaccines are an important part of preventing a wide range of serious and preventable illnesses. In order for your child to have optimal protection, their pediatrician will follow a recommended pediatric vaccine schedule indicating specific timing of immunizations throughout their childhood. A child’s vaccine schedule can help protect against preventable diseases and potentially deadly infections.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has laid out a comprehensive children’s vaccination schedule that includes a series of recommended vaccines from birth to young adulthood. This allows the doses to provide the best immunity early in life, before a child is exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases. Adhering to this vaccination schedule is crucial in preventing the spread of infectious diseases, as well as in helping strengthen your child’s immune system as they grow. It’s important to remember that vaccinations are a scientifically proven away to prevent many illnesses in children, but they are not a 100% impenetrable force field against illnesses. Vaccinations are a preventive measure and they are way we train our bodies to have a functioning and healthy immune system.Many vaccines are required to attend school and day care facilities.
