Your child is due for some vaccines. Vaccines are important for keeping children healthy. Children who are hospitalized or being treated for other conditions have greater risks if they are infected with vaccine-preventable diseases. For this reason, your child’s healthcare team would like to immunize your child.
Before any vaccine is given in the United States, a patient or the patient’s parent or caregiver must be provided with information called a Vaccine Information Statement, or VIS. This information is offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Please locate the VIS you were instructed to review from the menu below and click on the name to read more about this vaccine and the disease it prevents. Once you have reviewed the information, please contact your child’s healthcare provider to discuss any questions you have and to provide your consent for immunization.
If you have additional questions or concerns about vaccines, you can also visit our Vaccine Education Center website.
