The Importance Of Vaccines For Children

We provide Houston, TX, children with the vaccines they need to stay healthy. 

There have been a lot of conversations around vaccines over the last year, but it’s also brought to light the importance of protecting our families and children from dangerous diseases. Fortunately, we live in a day and age where our Houston, TX, board-certified and board-eligible pediatricians and physicians can safeguard your child from certain illnesses through simple vaccines. Vaccines begin when your child is born, but you and your child need to keep them up to date to protect their health.

Vaccines Save Lives 

Immunizations are one of the easiest ways for our Houston, TX, team to protect your children against many communicable diseases that can lead to disability or life-threatening complications. Anyone who has witnessed what polio did to Americans in the 50s knows how dangerous many of these diseases are. Fortunately, thanks to vaccines, we can continue to keep children safe. The only way to eradicate many of these diseases is through vaccines.

Vaccines Protect Those You Love 

While we know the benefits vaccines offer your child to bolster their immune system and protect them from illness, it’s just as important to recognize the impact that vaccines can have on preserving the rest of your family and the people you care about the most. After all, babies are often too young to get vaccinated and don’t typically have all of their vaccines, so by getting your children and the rest of your family vaccinated, you can protect those you love who cannot get vaccinated.

Vaccines Save A lot of Time and Money 

Preventing illness and injury in your child is the number one priority. So by turning to our Houston, TX, team for vaccines, we can prevent diseases in children that may cause severe disability or long-term health issues that require hospitalizations, long-term care and other serious medical expenses. Your child’s health insurance will cover vaccines, and federal programs can help low-income families afford vaccines for their children.

We understand that there’s a lot of misinformation regarding childhood vaccines. If you have questions or concerns, our Houston, TX, physicians and pediatricians are always here to answer them. Call Lawndale Medical Clinic at (713) 924-4907 to learn more or schedule your child’s next checkup.
