It is important for your child to see a pediatrician regularly to keep up to date on immunizations. Immunizations begin at birth with Hepatitis B. The following is a schedule of important immunizations:
- DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis)
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
“Research has shown that the best way for us to control these diseases is to vaccinate our children,” says Gary S. Olson, MD, FAAP, FCP, pediatrician, Saint Francis Medical Partner.
