Help Protect Texas' Babies: Make sure your children are fully vaccinated

NEW YORK, March 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --  A new bilingual, online resource is now available for parents to learn more about the ways they can help keep their children up-to-date on the vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Outbreaks of serious, vaccine-preventable infectious diseases, like measles, whooping cough, chickenpox and invasive pneumococcal disease can threaten the health of our children. What's more, unvaccinated babies and children under two years old are more vulnerable to these dangerous – even deadly – illnesses.  Still there are many infants and children in Texas who don't receive all the CDC-recommended vaccines that can help protect them.

This online resource offers simple, well-organized, user-friendly tools, including a consumer brochure, a direct link to the CDC's recommended vaccine schedule and a downloadable vaccine tracker.

County-specific resources for Texas residents also are available – including a list of vaccine providers that can accommodate busy schedules.
