Child Eye Health and Safety Month

As part of Child Eye Health and Safety Month it is recommended your child receive an eye examination before going back to school.  Start the new school year out right by making sure that your student is seeing clearly!

Did you know you need vaccines throughout your life?

Even if you were fully vaccinated as a child, the protection from some vaccines you received can wear off over time and you may need a booster. There also are specific vaccines that you may need as you get older based on your age, job, lifestyle, travel, or health conditions. Take this CDC quiz to find out which vaccines are right for you:

Protect Yourself – Get Vaccinated

If you have certain chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease, getting sick with vaccine-preventable diseases like flu and pneumonia can lead to serious complications, hospitalization or even death. Protect yourself – get vaccinated. Take CDC’s adult vaccine quiz to learn which vaccines may be recommended for you.
