Back-to-school season is here. It’s time for parents to gather school supplies and backpacks. It’s also the perfect time to make sure you and your children are up to date on vaccines to limit illnesses.
Child care facilities, preschool programs, schools and colleges are prone to outbreaks of infectious diseases. Children can easily spread illnesses to one another due to poor hand washing, not covering coughs, and interacting in crowded environments.
Talk to your family doctor to find out which vaccines are recommended before going back to school.
