(HealthDay News) -- Vaccination during childhood is essential because it helps provide immunity before children are exposed to life-threatening diseases.
If you choose to delay or reject vaccines for your children, there are important responsibilities you must assume to protect others, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC asks parents of unvaccinated children to:
- Always inform medical staff and your child's school of his/her status.
- Be aware. Vaccine-preventable diseases can strike at any time in the United States.
- Ask your child's doctor about ways to protect your family members and others who come in contact with your child.
