Recommended Immunizations for Children
Hepatitis B, Rotavirus, Diphtheria, Varicella, Hepatitis A, and Meningococcal are some of the recommended immunizations for children. Dr. Mario Zambrano, Pediatric Emergency Medicine Physician with Homestead Hospital, says there are certain diseases that are a little more serious than others, but all the vaccines are important.
“It’s better to give a few vaccines than no vaccines at all, but there’s an increasing number of parents that don’t want their child to suffer with multiple vaccines,” he points out. “We now have combination vaccines that makes it easier for the physician to give less vaccines, but we give at least three at a time.”
