It's National Infant Immunization Week....an annual reminder that to protect our youngest and most vulnerable from vaccine-preventable diseases. The current childhood vaccination schedule protects against 14 different nasty diseases, that I guarantee you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy!
This year, I've teamed up with the American Academy of Pediatrics to let parents know that as a pediatrician and a mom, I vaccinated my own children to protect them, and I wouldn't advise anything differently for your kids. Really.
Learn about vaccines. Learn about vaccine-preventable diseases. Talk to your pediatrician. But let's protect all our kids. This requires a group effort, people!
