As school gets underway this week, parents are reminded to make sure their children’s immunizations are current.
Dr. Kim Reagan, with Minden Pediatrics, offers some tips as to when children should be immunized and what vaccines they must have to attend school.
“Vaccines are a major part of what we do as pediatricians,” she said. “We try to focus on keeping our kids healthy and trying to prevent diseases that could be devastating to them.”
The major vaccines begin when a child is an infant. The major ages are at two months, four months, six months, one year, four years and 11 years.
