From infancy through adolescence, there are many vaccinations that children need to stay healthy and to protect those around them. Not only does High Tide Internal Medicine provide comprehensive care for the entire family, but we can make sure your child is up to date on all of the immunizations they need. Our healthcare providers are familiar with all of the childhood vaccines that your child needs to get a healthy start to their life!
Immunizations are one of the best ways to protect newborns, infants, children, and teens from harmful diseases that could be potentially harmful or fatal. Thanks to vaccines, many diseases that were once common in the United States are now at their lowest levels in several decades.
Because a child’s immune system is continually developing, vaccines work best when they are given in intervals at certain ages. Some vaccines also require multiple doses before complete immunization is achieved. Since vaccines should be administered on a particular schedule, seeing the same doctor for all of them helps to ensure that records are accurate and doses are not missed. However, if a recommended dose is missed for whatever reason, we can get your child caught up.
By bringing your child to our practice for their immunizations and all of their other healthcare needs, they can receive all of their medical care in one place that will be familiar with their health history and have up-to-date records on all of the vaccines that they have received. Since protection from childhood vaccines wears off over time, a child who receives their shots at the same medical practice that they continue to attend as they grow up helps to ensure that they receive the proper boosters as they move into adulthood.
From the youngest members of your family to the adults and seniors, High Tide Internal Medicine can ensure that everyone is up to date on their recommended vaccines. Call us at (843) 580-7206 to schedule an appointment to update your child’s vaccines or to take care of any other healthcare needs that your family has.
