Progressive Pediatrics Vaccines & Immunizations
Vaccinations and Immunizations Information
It’s important for every parent to ensure that their children are properly protected against many common diseases. Today’s vaccines make it easy to achieve that goal. Preventing diseases according to the childhood vaccinations schedule recommended by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices includes many single and combination vaccines that are licensed in the US. These vaccines immunize, or protect, children against the following preventable diseases:
- Hemophilus influenza type b (Hib)
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Human papillomavirus (HPV)
- Influenza (flu)
- Measles, Mumps and Rubella (German measles)
- Meningococcal disease
- Pertussis (whooping cough)
- Pneumococcal disease
- Tetanus (lockjaw)
- Varicella (chickenpox)
At Progressive Pediatrics, we vaccinate and immunize children during their regular preventive care visits, according to the CDC recommended immunization schedule.
