LEARN THE SIGNS.  ACT EARLY.


From birth to 5 years, your child should reach milestones in how he plays, learns, speaks, acts and moves. Track your child’s development and act early if you have a concern.  CDC’s “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” program aims to improve early identification of children with autism and other developmental disabilities so children and families can get the services and support they need.  Click HERE or on the box below to access this free information.

The Importance of Vaccinations

                            

Parents want to do everything possible to make sure their children are healthy and protected from preventable diseases.   Vaccination is the best way to do that.

 

Vaccination protects children from serious illness and complications of vaccine-preventable diseases, such as measles, mumps, and whooping cough.  

 

Outbreaks of preventable diseases occur when many parents decide not to vaccinate their children. Vaccination is safe and effective. 

 

Vaccination protects others you care about, including family members, friends, and grandparents.  We all have a public health commitment to our communities to protect each other and each other’s children by vaccinating our own family members.

 

Here are some resources for accurate information about vaccinations:

  

-  Click here for video by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) addressing parents' concerns about immunizations

-  Click here for the CDC website  with information for parents about vaccinating children of any age

-  Every Child By 2 has this ebook for parents, with info on different preventable diseases
