Back to School, Back to the Doctor!
As your children head back to school, it’s time make sure their vaccinations are up to date. Our pediatrics clinic offers all recommended back to school vaccines to help keep your kids healthy and ready to learn. We provide immunizations against diseases like measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, polio, hepatitis A and B, meningitis, pneumococcal disease, HPV and influenza.
Getting the proper vaccinations not only protects your child, but also prevents the spread of illness that could put infants, pregnant women, seniors and immunocompromised individuals in our community at risk.
Call 504-529-5558 today to make an appointment for a back to school vaccination visit so we can help your kids stay happy and healthy as they head back to the classroom.
