National Immunization Month

August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM), a time to increase awareness about immunizations. MOST is encouraging all families to check their children’s immunization status during the month of August. More information is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Web site.

Shots can prevent serious diseases like the flu, measles, and tuberculosis (TB). It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them.

Most everyone age 6 months and older needs to get a flu shot every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages. There are some adults and children that cannot receive vaccinations due to medical conditions. Check with your health care professional.

Talk to your doctor or nurse to make sure that everyone in your family gets the shots they need.


End of Summer

The end of summer for many families means a change of schedules.  Last summer vacation, getting ready and starting school, shortened days.  Whether home school, public school, private school or charter school, the school year is filled with activities and learning.  Are your children getting the sleep they need? Read our blog about sleep needs of children (infant to adult).  Is a child going to school with ADHD?  Read the blog Back to School with ADHD for ways to help your child succeed.
