Health Care For Children is a children’s clinic that believes in protecting every member of the Northland’s families, as well as their peers, with vaccines for children. We strongly encourage parents to adhere to the immunization schedule for vaccines for their children as determined by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which is outlined below.
Importance of Childhood Vaccinations
Aside from the obvious exposure to germs, the appropriate vaccinations can protect your child from diseases such as TB, mumps, measles, rubella, hepatitis B, and many more. Childhood vaccinations not only protect your child, but other members of your family. Getting your child vaccinated at a children’s clinic now can later benefit you and your family. Instances as minor as absences from school, to major issues such as hospitalization, extensive medical bills, long-term disability, full time care can all be avoided with a simple vaccination.
