Regular vaccinations are an important part of a healthy childhood. Kid’s 1st Pediatrics follows current guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control as well as recommendations from the California Department of Public Health. She believes firmly in the benefits of these immunizations, or “baby shots” as they are sometimes called, to control diseases both for children as well as throughout the community.
Today, regular vaccinations are needed more than ever. The prevalence of worldwide travel means that diseases can quickly spread around the globe. Plus, the dissemination of incorrect information about vaccinations on social media, throughout the Internet and even from celebrity influencers has decreased the number of parents who are willing to get their children vaccinated. This has led to entire communities becoming under-vaccinated and to the increased spread of certain diseases that used to be nearly entirely controlled, such as measles. When children are so close to each other, such as in school, diseases can spread quickly, and major outbreaks of dangerous childhood diseases can crop up nearly overnight.
Kid’s 1st Pediatrics provides vaccinations according to the schedule recommended by the AAP and the CDC.
However, parents can rest assured that the research behind vaccinations is both powerful and accurate. The United States government has put plenty of money into scientific research about vaccinations as well as their possible side effects. Therefore, parents can rest easy in the safety of vaccinations and in their major benefits. Because these diseases are on the rise in many areas, it is more important than ever to ensure that babies and young children are vaccinated.
