At Community Health of Central Washington (CHCW), we understand that your child’s health is your top priority. As the sunny days of summer approach, it’s essential to emphasize the significance of childhood vaccinations. Here’s why timely vaccinations matter:

Protect Your Child’s Health: Vaccinate This Summer!

Preventing Serious Illnesses: Vaccines are like a protective shield for your child. They guard against serious diseases. By vaccinating your child, you’re taking a proactive step to prevent these illnesses.

Building Immunity: Vaccinations help your child’s immune system recognize and fight off harmful pathogens. They create a defense mechanism that strengthens over time, ensuring your child’s body is prepared to combat infections.

Protecting Community Health: Vaccinating your child not only shields them but also contributes to community immunity. It prevents outbreaks and protects those who cannot receive vaccines (such as infants or individuals with certain medical conditions).

Key Vaccination Milestones:

Infants: Hepatitis B, Rotavirus, and DTaP vaccines are crucial during infancy. These protect against serious diseases and lay the foundation for a healthy future.

Toddlers: MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) and Varicella (chickenpox) vaccines are administered during the toddler years. These prevent highly contagious diseases and ensure your child’s well-being.

Pre-teens: HPV (human papillomavirus) and Meningococcal vaccines are recommended for pre-teens. These safeguard against specific infections and promote long-term health.

Schedule Your Child’s Vaccination Today: Don’t wait—book your child’s vaccination appointment now.  CHCW clinics are here to support you in keeping your child fully protected. Let’s ensure a healthy and vibrant summer for your little one!
