A Time for Thanks, A Time to Vaccinate

21 Nov

As the holidays approach, it is a very difficult time for parents who have lost children for any reason, but maybe even harder for parents who have lost children who didn’t need to die – those children who were lost to a vaccine-preventable disease.  I am one of those parents, and my heart is heavy that my beautiful son Evan is not with us again this year.  If only I had known that bacterial meningitis is potentially vaccine-preventable.

I urge all of you to give thanks for your children’s good health and to make sure that this holiday season, you give them the best gift of all, to make sure they are up to date on all of their vaccinations.
