Add vaccines to your back-to-school supply list! Preparing for back-to-school also means making sure you and your loved ones have the correct immunizations. Requirements vary from state to state, but some common guidelines include the MMR, diptheria, and yearly flu vaccines.
Immunizations protect those who get them from disease, but they also protect other members of the community with compromised immune systems who would otherwise be vulnerable, such as newborn babies or the elderly.
For more information on National Immunization Awareness month, check out the CDC’s resources on the event. You can also see their recommended immunizations for children, teens/preteens, adults, and travelers.
