School Starts Soon—Is Your Child Fully Vaccinated?

august -page

No matter what grade your child is about to enter, there’s the yearly back-to-school checklist of to-dos like shopping for school supplies, filling out permission forms and, of course, scheduling your child’s pediatric visit at Care Resource.  The back-to-school season is a convenient time for putting the exam on your family’s schedule and make sure that your school-age children, from preschoolers to college students receive their vaccines. 

During the month of July, new clients without Health Insurance can receive a free comprehensive check-up and their required vaccinations for school including, but not limited to vaccinations for polio, chicken-pox, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR), DTap and Tdap (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis).  New clients can also receive a NEW back-to-school backpack. To redeem this promotion, one MUST first make an appointment. To make an appointment, call 305-576-1234 EXT: 470 (English) and 471 (Spanish). 

According to Alicia Fernandez-Garcia, MD, Pediatrician with Care Resource, “Make sure your children are up-to-date on vaccines before sending them back to school. School-age children, from preschoolers, to middle schoolers, to college students, need vaccines.  Making sure that children of all ages receive all their vaccinations on time is one of the most important things you can do as a parent to ensure your children’s long-term health—as well as the health of friends, classmates, and others in your community. If children aren’t vaccinated, they can spread disease to other children who are too young to be vaccinated or to people with weakened immune systems. This could result in long-term complications and even death for these vulnerable people. We all have a public health commitment to our communities to protect each other and each other’s children by vaccinating our own family members.” 

It is important for children to be treated by pediatricians in an environment that is equipped to meet the needs of children. Your family’s pediatrician is an important partner in keeping your child happy and healthy, from birth through adolescence. With offices conveniently located throughout South Florida, where your family lives, works and plays, Care Resource’s pediatric services are right for you.
