Parents often remember school supplies, new clothes, and bus schedules when doing their back-to-school planning, but an important factor that often is overlooked is vaccines. If your child needs a back-to-school vaccination, the pharmacists at Eberhart Health Mart Pharmacy in St. Louis, MO, can administer them right there in the drugstore. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has online guides to help parents make sure their children are current on all recommended and required vaccines.
Vaccines help protect your children from serious diseases, viruses, and infections, such as whooping cough and measles, that easily can spread from student to student. Making sure your children are vaccinated is one of the best ways to help schools and communities avoid illness outbreaks.
At Eberhart Health Mart Pharmacy, most vaccines are covered by Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance, and their friendly staff can help you through the process. Some of the most common back-to-school vaccines protect you from the following:
- Human papillomavirus
- Measles, mumps, and rubella
- Hepatitis B
- Varicella (chickenpox)
- Diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough
The CDC recommends all children be vaccinated according to local and state requirements. Eberhart Health Mart Pharmacy makes it easy for busy parents to check these important requirements off their to-do list without the hassle of scheduling a doctor’s appointment.
