Car seats, baby gates, window locks, anti-slip mats — you’re always thinking of ways to keep your children safe. But the best protection when it comes to pediatric care is to make sure they have all of their vaccinations. Children are exposed to germs every day, and some of these can cause lifelong damage. Fortunately, ACCESS Nursing Services offer a vaccination program to help shield your child from a range of potentially fatal conditions. They understand every child is unique and deserves the highest quality pediatric care.
Here are five important reasons to have nursing services vaccinate your child:
- Save Your Child’s Life: Many serious diseases in existence today come with devastating effects. For instance, meningococcal disease can cause kidney damage and deafness. Polio was once America’s most-feared disease, but thanks to vaccination, the nation is now polio-free.
- Disease Can Spread Easily: Even if you’ve never seen a case of measles in your state, it still occurs in many parts of the world. Once an infected, unvaccinated traveler rides a plane or another form of public transportation, the disease can easily arrive in your community.
- Save Time & Money: Some conditions, if not prevented, may result in long-term disability and require thorough pediatric care. This can take a physical, emotional, and financial toll on you and your family. Your child may even have difficulty attending school. These are just a few reasons why vaccination is a worthy investment.
- Effective & Proven: The U.S. currently has the safest, most effective vaccine supply in its history. Vaccines are evaluated and tested extensively before a caregiver can administer them to children.
- Protect Future Generations: Vaccines have eliminated many conditions that killed and disabled people a few generations ago. One example of this is smallpox — children today no longer need to get vaccinated for smallpox because it no longer exists. Getting your child vaccinated not only protects them and others now, but also future generations.
