Schedule Immunizations Today to Help Your Child Have a Healthier Tomorrow

Baltimore County, MD – Each year, thousands of children become ill from diseases that could have been prevented by basic childhood immunizations. Countless more miss time from day care and school because they are under-immunized or inappropriately immunized. 

During the week of April 21 through 28, the Baltimore County Department of Health will observe National Infant Immunization Week, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention initiative designed to raise awareness about the importance of childhood immunizations. Giving babies the recommended immunizations by age two is the best way to protect them from 14 serious childhood diseases, like whooping cough and measles. 

If your child has not had all recommended immunizations, it’s not too late to catch up. Contact the Baltimore County Department of Health Immunization Action Program at 410-887-2705 for more information. Immunize your child today to help them have a healthier tomorrow!
