Not only is it important for your child to stay up-to-date on their immunizations, but tracking and getting recommended vaccines on time can help prevent and protect them from serious diseases.
It has been shown that at various ages children are more susceptible to certain diseases. With vaccines at the appropriate times, they are better protected. By following these guidelines from our providers, you can prevent an infectious disease that could leave an adult sick but be life-threatening or deadly for a child.
The Well-Child Visit
The CDC recommends that all children visit their doctor for well-child visits. These visits involve tracking and recording information related to your child’s growth and development and provide a space where any concerns can be discussed.
These visits also involve administering CDC-recommended treatments for vaccine-preventable diseases, which would otherwise compromise their developing immune systems.
Healthcare providers have worked with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to create a recommended schedule designed to provide protection that is safe and effective in protecting your children from birth to their pre-teens.
Below is the recommended well check and childhood immunization schedule from the CDC. It is important to note that a child is not considered to be fully protected unless they stay on schedule and have all their vaccine doses.
