How important is it for me to get my child’s vaccinations now? Can it wait?

Vaccinations are a vital part of maintaining your child’s health and well-being. Without up-to-date vaccinations, your child could get sick from serious diseases like measles, rubella, pertussis (whooping cough) and many others. Many children have missed their vaccinations due to concerns about COVID-19. Children need to be vaccinated before they are potentially exposed. Now is the right time to bring your child’s vaccinations up to date to protect your child.
