Doctor’s order: Get kids vaccinated
As kids head back to school, doctors are reminding parents about the importance of vaccinations. Dr. Caryn Avery, Chief of Pediatrics at Group Health encourages parents to follow the immunization schedule put out by the CDC, saying that scheduled vaccines are the best way to keep kids healthy and stop deadly diseases from spreading.
The Group Health Foundation, along with Bartell Drugs and Seattle Seahawk, Cliff Avril, are teaming up to make sure kids get vaccinated. The “Catch Every Kid” campaign reminds parents to vaccinate their kids and is working to make sure all children have access to vaccines.
