BX parents urged to have kids inoculated during National Infant Immunization Week
This week is National Infant Immunization Week and doctors want to make sure Bronx parents know the importance of vaccinations. To protect newborns who are often vulnerable to disease, doctors strongly recommend a battery of vaccinations. Doctors at Montefiore Pediatric Center are tying to get the word out to parents that these vaccinations can protect their children from serious and even fatal diseases. Doctors also say parents should not listen to rumors that some vaccinations are dangerous; instead consult a pediatrician before making any decisions.
