As measles outbreaks continue to grow across the United States, UAB experts call for the administration of safe vaccinations.
As parents check off their children’s back-to-school needs, vaccinations should be top of the list.
Vaccines are scientifically proven to save lives and prevent major outbreaks of highly infectious diseases among large populations in a safe and effective way.
David Kimberlin, M.D., vice chair of Pediatrics and co-director of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, is a physician at Children’s of Alabama. He is the editor of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Red Book, which establishes which vaccines should be given, when and to whom.
