August is National Immunization Month
August is National Immunization Month. Crossing Rivers Health and Crawford County Health and Human Services would like to take this opportunity to encourage parents and guardians to immunize their children. One of the most important things a parent can do to protect their child’s health is getting their child vaccinated according to the recommended immunization schedule.
Immunizations have reduced most of these diseases to very low levels in the United States. However, some of these diseases are still common in other parts of the world. Travelers can bring these diseases into this country. Without immunizations, these infections could quickly spread here. Immunizations also help people who cannot be vaccinated or who do not respond to vaccines if those around them are vaccinated.
