As the lazy days of summer come to an end, many parents with school-age children are beginning their back to school preparations. If you’re among them, be sure to include your child’s pediatric check-up and/or annual immunizations on your list. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have a list of recommended vaccinationsyour child should receive— as well as when they should receive them. Newer additions to the schedule in the State of Maryland are specific vaccinations for children who are entering kindergarten and seventh grade. As of last year, the law requires that students entering kindergarten this fall must have two varicella vaccinations. Meanwhile, students who are entering seventh grade must have one Tdap (Tetanus-diphtheria-attenuated pertussis) and one meningococcal (MCV4) vaccination.
Immunization is a key part of protecting your child’s health. Millions of lives have been saved and untold cases of diseases have been prevented because of people getting vaccines to help them develop immunity to serious infections. Diseases that used to affect many people, such as polio, measles, pertussis (whooping cough), and meningitis, now are rare thanks to vaccines. It’s important to note that the germs that cause these illnesses continue to exist; so continued immunization is critical to the health of your child.
Additionally, immunization isn’t just good for your child’s health; it’s also good for those around him or her. When you immunize your child, you help protect the health of others including those who are too young to be vaccinated, those who are unable to be vaccinated due to medical reasons, and those for whom a vaccine may not be effective.
As you enjoy your final days of summer and begin your back-to-school shopping, please include your child’s health among your plans. Here’s wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and safe school year!
Back-to-School Immunization Clinics - To assist parents in getting their children immunized before the start of the 2015 to 2016 school year, the Baltimore County Department of Health will provide recommended vaccines at no cost for children up to age 18 who are eligible under the Vaccines for Children program.
