(STATEPOINT) — August is National Immunization Awareness Month and the perfect opportunity to make sure everyone is up-to-date with their vaccination schedules, particularly children headed back-to-school.
Different ages and communications are susceptible to different diseases. Knowing what vaccines you have received and which you need is crucial.
While it’s a great idea to keep your own records up-to-date at home, you can always check in with your physician, too.
