Find out how often your child should be coming in for vaccinations and why they are important.
As a parent, there is nothing more important than the health and wellbeing of your child, and seeing your little one sick can be heartbreaking and stressful. This is why it’s so important to visit our Las Vegas, NV pediatricians Dr. Nasreen Majid and Dr. Susan Hirata for routine vaccinations. Vaccines protect your little ones from potentially deadly or crippling infections.
So, when should your child get their first vaccinations?
Since the vaccination schedule can change every so often, it’s always a good idea to follow the CDC’s site for information on the most current schedule for child vaccinations. The first vaccination your child will receive should be given within the first week after birth. When in doubt, ask one of our Las Vegas children’s doctors. We will always let you know when your child should come in for care.
Are vaccines safe?
Vaccinations are safe and effective. They make it possible to protect your child against life-threatening diseases and health complications. If you are concerned about vaccinations feel free to sit down with our pediatricians and ask any questions you might have.
Are there are instances in which children should not get vaccinated?
While school-age children should always get the vaccinations they require, there are some rare circumstances in which a child might actually not need a vaccination. If your child is taking a medication that could suppress their immune system or if your child has cancer then we may recommend that your child not get certain inoculations.
