Diseases such as measles, polio and whooping cough are rare, but for unvaccinated babies; the consequences can be deadly.
“There are some children who, for medical reasons, cannot be vaccinated and in order to protect them, the best protection is vaccination for anyone who comes in contact with them,” said Dr. Carolyn Fruthhaler of the Grayson County Health Department.
Experts recommend parents make sure all of their children’s vaccines are up-to-date during National Immunization Week.
