The COVID-19 pandemic has caused parents and caregivers in Nevada and across the nation to postpone routine well-child checkups, including immunizations. This puts millions of children at risk for exposure to 14 preventable diseases, including the measles and whooping cough. Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advised doctors to maintain vaccine schedules as persistently as possible, especially for young children.
“Ensuring children are up to date on their vaccines is critical, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to prevent further outbreaks,” says Heidi Parker, executive director of Immunize Nevada. “COVID-19 is a reminder of the challenges we face when fighting a disease without an available vaccine.”
Immunize Nevada, a statewide nonprofit dedicated to immunizations, is widely recognized as Nevada’s trusted resource for immunizations and community health for all ages by fostering education and statewide collaboration. Immunize Nevada’s vision is healthy communities across Nevada protected from vaccine-preventable disease.
