Send Your Children Back to School Protected from Serious Diseases with proper immunizations
MIAMI – Back-to-school season is here. It’s time for parents to gather school supplies and back packs. It’s also the perfect time to make sure your children are up to date on their immunizations.
To celebrate the importance of immunizations for people of all ages – and make sure children are protected with all the vaccines they need as they go back to school. Powell Health Solutions is joining with partners nationwide in recognizing August as National Immunization Awareness Month.
National Immunization Awareness Month is a reminder that we all need vaccines throughout our lives.
“Getting children all of the vaccines recommended by CDC’s immunization schedule is one of the most important things parents can do to protect their children from serious diseases,” said Dr. Michelle C. Powell,D.O., M.P.H. who is a Board Certified Osteopathic Family Physician and the Founder CEO of Powell Health Solutions (PHS), a multi-specialty medical practice with multiple centers throughout South Florida. “If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to check you can check with us and found out what vaccines your child needs.”
Vaccines protect against a number of serious and potentially life-threatening diseases. When children are not vaccinated, they are at increased risk for diseases and can also spread diseases to others in their classrooms and community – including babies who are too young to be fully vaccinated, and people with weakened immune systems due to cancer or other health conditions.
