Does Your Child Need Back to School Vaccinations?

School is back in session and that means your child’s exposure to germs and diseases is back as well. What is the best preventative measure that you can take to decrease your child’s risk? The physicians at Sunflower Medical Group suggest beginning the school year with back to school vaccinations.

School-Age Children Need Vaccines 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “School-age children, from preschoolers to college students need vaccines.” There are many diseases out there, such as measles and whooping cough that can severely affect your child if they are not vaccinated. When your child is vaccinated, it eliminates the severity of an illness and helps protect schools and communities from outbreaks.
