Children and Vaccination Needs



NPR reports a drop in pediatric appointments, likely related to the current increase in telemedicine appointments and fears of exposing children to coronavirus. Experts advise parents to remember to ensure their child's vaccinations are up to date and to not accidentally skip over doses. Staying up to date on vaccinations would be crucial to optimizing health during these precarious times. From the threat of measles to whooping cough and other conditions, optimizing immunity is essential not only for the child, but to help ensure herd immunity.
