Remember August is Child Immunization Awareness Month

National Immunization Awareness Month is an annual observance held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages.  With the school year beginning, now is the time to assess if your child is up to date on their immunizations.  Vaccines play an important role in preventing serious, sometimes deadly, diseases.  Below are links to age appropriate vaccination schedules for the state of Texas, how to obtain vaccination records and low-cost vaccinations:
