While we wait for a coronavirus vaccination, the Texas Medical Association and the Texas Pediatric Society urge you to keep your child’s routine vaccinations up to date. Vaccinations are one of the safest, most effective ways to protect children from 14 serious diseases, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We physicians haven’t seen our usual number of patients these past few months. That means more kids are at risk for an undetected health problem or an illness a vaccine can prevent, like whooping cough. Just last year, Texas reported the most measles cases since 2000.
We physicians are here to protect your family’s health, now more than ever. To ensure you can visit our offices safely, we’ve added protective measures and precautions.
Take time today to schedule your little one’s well checks. And make sure your older kids get their shots to prepare for a safe return to school.
