As the new school year approaches, pediatricians are reminding parents of the crucial role immunizations play in keeping kids healthy. “Immunizations can help your body develop resistance to specific diseases and increase your immunity to them,” said Dr. Karina Maher, a pediatrician at Kaiser Permanente’s Santa Monica Medical Offices. “It’s very important for the whole family to be up to date on vaccines to protect themselves, their children and the community.” August is also National Immunization Awareness Month, and Maher says following the recommended immunization schedule is one of the most important things a parent can do to protect their child’s health. Please take a look at this video on immunizations, featuring Dr. Maher.
