August is National Immunization Awareness Month. Immunization helps prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. Protect your Child with Measles and other diseases preventable Vaccines.

Immunization protects all of us so don’t wait-vaccinate! 

Vaccines are used to boost your immune system and prevent serious, life-threatening diseases.  Vaccination is important because it not only protects the person receiving the vaccine, but also helps prevent the spread of diseases to others-especially those who are most vulnerable to serious complications, such as infants and young children, the elderly, and those with chronic conditions and weakened immune systems.

It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them.  Talk to your doctor or nurse, get a list of recommended immunizations and inquire whether you and your loved ones are up-to-date, make sure that everyone in your family gets the shots they need, it is the safest and most effective way to protect yourselves against some diseases.

Vaccines are needed throughout our life time.Vaccines are an important step in protecting against serious and sometimes, deadly diseases.  Get immunized and stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and pneumonia. 

Two of the most common Vaccine preventable diseases are Measles & Flu.

  • Measles is caused by a virus. Measles is extremely contagious, and is spread through the air by coughing, sneezing, and even breathing. It can lead to ear infection, pneumonia, seizures (jerking and staring), brain damage, and death. Everyone  who is not protected against measles is at risk of getting infected. 

  • Influenza (Flu) Flu is a seasonal illness, occurring mainly during the winter. It causes fever, sore throat, cough, headache, chills and muscle aches, and can lead to sinus infections, pneumonia, inflammation of the heart, and death. Flu causes more deaths each year than any other vaccine preventable disease. Most of these deaths are among the elderly, but flu also kills children. Hospitalization rates are high among children, especially those under 1 year old. 

DTap/Tdap and MMRV boosters, protects against several serious diseases, 

  • DTap or Tdap:tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough)

  • MMR or MMRV:measle, mumps, rubella, and chicken pox

Talk with your doctor about whether you need special immunizations because you:
  • Are in close contact with people who have an infectious disease.
  • Have planned international travel, especially to developing countries.
  • Live with or visit a pregnant woman or baby.
  • Live with someone who has an impaired immune system

Current recommendations are available at the CDC website: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules.
