Educational Resources for Schools & Day Care
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends vaccinations from birth through adulthood to provide a lifetime of protection against many diseases and infections. Immunizations have had an enormous impact on improving the health of children in the United States. Vaccination is one of the best ways parents can protect infants, children, and teens from 16 potentially harmful diseases. Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization, and can even be deadly – especially in infants and young children.
Educational information and resources are available for teachers, daycare providers, students, and parents/guardians.
