Protect Your Child at Any Age
Between the ages of 2 and 6 years, it is important that your child receives the recommended doses of their routine vaccines to keep them protected. These doses they received earlier in life help them maintain the best protection against vaccine-preventable diseases.
If your child missed a vaccine, now is a good time to make sure they are protected from DTaP, HepA, and Pneumonia.
As kids get older, they are still at risk for certain diseases. Before heading back to school, three vaccines are recommended for 11-12 year olds—HPV, Tdap, and meningococcal conjugate vaccine.
Hepatitis B is a liver disease that results from infection with the Hepatitis B
virus. Severity can vary from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a serious, chronic condition.
These 3 diseases are all caused by bacteria. Both diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough) are spread from person to person. Tetanus enters the body through cuts, scratches, or wounds.
Polio is an infection caused by a virus that affects the entire body, including muscles and nerves. It can infect a person of any age, but children five and under are especially vulnerable and make up roughly 50% of polio victims.
These are viruses that can lead to rashes, fever, pain and sometimes seizures. They can spread from person to person through the air. You can easily catch them by being around someone who is already infected.
Varicella, commonly known as chicken pox, is most common amongst children and is a highly contagious disease. After a chicken pox infection, the virus hides in nerve cells and can come back years later and cause a disease called shingles.
Although it’s not required by the Washington State Department of Health, the flu vaccine is recommended annually. Every year in the US, approximately 38 million school days are missed due to children getting the flu.
HPV causes over 31,500 cases of cancer in men and women every year in the U.S. HPV vaccination can prevent over 90% (30,000) of these cancers by preventing the infections that cause those cancers.
Meningococcal disease is an uncommon, but serious disease that is caused by a bacterial infection of the lining of the brain and spinal cord. Teens and young adults have an increased risk for meningitis B due to several factors, such as living in close quarters or being in close contact with others.
