Childhood immunizations

One of the best ways to protect your children is to make sure they have all their vaccinations. Because vaccination can save your child’s life! They can be protected from more diseases than ever before. Some babies are too young to be completely vaccinated, and some people may not be able to receive vaccinations due to allergies, illness, or weakened immune systems. In addition, by vaccinating people around the vulnerable, we help to protect the vulnerable. Newborn babies are immune to many diseases because they have antibodies from their mothers, but maternal immunity does not extend to all vaccine-preventable diseases.

When you come for your appointment, the doctor will discuss her recommended immunization schedule. For more information, see this resource.
