Immunizing your baby is essential.
Healthcare providers are open and offering immunizations.
Keep your little one safe.
Make sure your baby gets all recommended immunizations before his or her second birthday. It’s the best way to protect your baby from 14 serious diseases, like whooping cough and mumps.
Healthcare providers are open and offering immunizations because on-time immunization is essential. Postponing immunizations could lead to an outbreak of vaccine-preventable disease, like measles.
Contact a healthcare provider.
Call your baby’s healthcare provider and ask if your baby is up to date on immunizations. Or call Mary Bridge Mobile Immunization Clinic at (253) 403-1767.
If you’re pregnant, now is a great time to find a doctor for your baby and discuss any questions you have about immunizations.
