Get your child’s vaccination schedule back on track
Dr. Jacob Sinkoff, a member of the IEP Urgent Care team and ER Physician at Henry Ford Hospital Jackson was recently interviewed on JTV about the importance of getting back on track with your child’s regular vaccination schedule. “With COVID, kids kind of got lost a little bit. The Michigan Department of Health provides a vaccine schedule and it’s important for parents and their children to get caught up. Now, it’s more important than ever to be up to date on all needed vaccines.”
According to the FDA, “Vaccines have contributed to a significant reduction in many childhood infectious diseases, such as diphtheria, measles, and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). Some infectious diseases, such as polio have been eliminated in the United States due to effective vaccines. With high vaccination rates, it is now rare for children in the United States to experience the devastating and often deadly effects of some infectious diseases that were once common in the United States and other countries.”
“Vaccines have been proven over and over to be safe and effective,” said Dr. Sinkoff. Your primary care physician or any IEP Urgent Care provider can help you make sure your child is up to date on all needed vaccines. And remember, September-October are the best months for everyone in the family to get an annual flu vaccine.
