Don’t Forget Your Children’s Vaccines
It's crucial to stay on schedule with your child's immunizations. As you know, there are several vaccines required for school attendance and you may have been delayed in getting boosters due to the pandemic.
As social distancing measures continue, it's more important than ever not to wait until the last minute to schedule an appointment with your child's healthcare provider.
Contact the School Nurse at your child's school if you have questions about the required vaccines needed to meet the State of Ohio school vaccination requirements or if you need help finding a healthcare provider. Or contact your family physician.
