Are you wondering about the importance of immunizing your child in West Jordan, UT?
One way to make navigating pediatric healthcare easier is to secure the services of a qualified, caring pediatrician such as Dr. Pari Mashkuri of Southwest Children’s Clinic. A pediatrician such as Dr. Mashkuri not only has years of advanced education and experience, she has dedicated her skills and passion for medicine into the specialty of pediatrics – she does nothing but take care of children.
Making those important healthcare decisions for your child can be confusing, even daunting. A lot of information – and misinformation – is floating around out there. Some may be more accurate and reliable than others.
One of the most important issues you will discuss with your West Jordan, UT pediatrician is your child’s immunization schedule. In fact, Dr. Mashkuri and Southwest Pediatric Associates strongly recommend following the immunization schedules and guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control. Vaccinations are not only safe, they are highly effective in preventing many childhood diseases and also help children better fight off infections. Contrary to some popular opinions, immunizations can actually start at very early ages – it is absolutely safe and a good idea to do so. In fact, by way of example, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children usually start vaccinations for Hepatitis B at one month; others such as influenza, diphtheria, and polio can start at 2 months.
Your child’s first year of life is an extraordinary time, a time of profound and rapid change, of awesome development, of amazing growth. That’s why the American Academy of Pediatrics actually recommends visits to your West Jordan pediatrician at one month of age, two months of age, and at regular intervals throughout the first year.
At Southwest Pediatric Associates, staff, such as Dr. Mashkuri, are committed to guiding you and your children along a good, safe, effective and healthy path.
