Vaccinate Your Family

A very small (but vocal) group of misinformed people claim vaccines contain a laundry list of things they consider “toxins.” These lists are designed to scare parents away from vaccines by misrepresenting ingredients and taking them completely out of context. Not only are vaccine ingredients safe in the tiny amounts used, but they are often included to keep vaccines safe from contamination, make them more effective, or reduce the number of doses needed. The truth is that vaccines are the safest and most effective way to protect your family against dangerous diseases like measles and meningitis.

Find out more about what research shows about the safety and science of vaccine ingredients by visiting: vaccinateyourfamily.org/vaccine-ingredients

No health insurance? You can still get your children the vaccines they need. The Vaccines for Children (VFC) program offers free vaccines for children (through 19 years of age) whose families can't afford to pay for their vaccines. There may be other costs associated with the vaccination visit such as an administrative fee or co-pay; however, VFC vaccines cannot be denied to an eligible child if the family cannot afford the fee.

The KY AAP is encouraging parents to keep well-child visits and has released an official statement, please see attached. In accordance with guidance from the Governor, released on 4/15, the KY AAP would like to remind pediatricians of the Governor’s guidance during this pandemic, “Providers will need to use their clinical judgment as to what components of the visit are appropriate to be performed during the telehealth visit…Any member that receives a preventive medicine visit via telehealth should have an in-person follow-up visit within 6 months of the end of the declared emergency to complete the rest of the components of the well-child visit that were not able to be performed via telehealth.”

It is flu season once again, folks. Contact your provider, local health department or head to the nearest pharmacy and get vaccinated.

The IU Health Special Pathogens program manager says flu season actually began two months ahead of schedule in Australia and New Zealand, which are typical indicators for how America will be affected.

It might feel like summer just started, but kids will be headed back to school in many parts of the country in a few short weeks! Make sure your pre-teens and teens receive
the first dose of the MenACWY vaccine at age 11-12 and the second dose at 16. Also be sure to talk to their doctor about the MenB vaccine. https://www.wtvm.com/2019/07/24/make-sure-your-children-are-up-date-vaccines-before-school/

"Many kids do not receive all their vaccines on schedule because their parents forget to bring them in or simply feel they don’t have the time."

While the majority of U.S. adolescents receive the first dose of the MenACWY vaccine, more than half have not received the CDC-recommended second dose at age 16. NMA fully supports all efforts to combat under-vaccination and ensure that all U.S. teens are protected against vaccine-preventable diseases. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-u-s-needs-to-tighten-vaccination-mandates1/
