Vaccinations Clinic at LifeScape Premier in Scottsdale, AZ
Not only is it that time of year again for back-to-school vaccinations and immunizations, but the recent outbreak of infectious diseases like whooping cough have our vaccinations clinic on high alert.
Every year around this time we see an influx of students going back to school needing sports physicals, updated booster shots and proof of vaccinations for entering new school districts and for joining sports teams. It’s the perfect time of year for parents to get their annual executive physicals and to make sure their vaccinations are up to date as well. Making time for your health is in investment that many of us forego, until something unexpected happens. Accidents happen every day. Is your tetanus shot up to date? A last minute business trip aboard. Are your travel vaccinations current and on par with travel requirements? Taking a proactive approach and making time for the whole family to come in and get immunized is an imperative.
The recent outbreak of insidious diseases like whooping cough make this point even more apparent. Long thought by many to be eradicated due to decades of proactive vaccination — whooping cough is rearing its ugly head again – in a big way! According to a Washington Post article this week, “Worrisome numbers have been reported in more than a dozen states…” and “With nearly 18,000 cases so far this year, health officials say this is shaping up to be the worst national epidemic in more than 50 years for the highly contagious disease.” Primary vaccinations for children and adult boosters are the first step of defense against this insipid illness.
