Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that fewer children are receiving timely immunizations this year compared to last year. This decline can leave young children and communities at risk for preventable diseases like measles. The CDC and Lone Star Circle of Care remind parents that well-child visits are essential, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, for many reasons including:
· Tracking growth and development including milestones, social behaviors, and learning
· Discussing any concerns about your child’s health
· Getting scheduled vaccinations to prevent illnesses like measles and whooping cough (pertussis) and 12 other serious diseases.
