For many parents, navigating back-to-school is very different this year. Whether your family is distance learning from home, in-person at school, or somewhere in between, it is important to keep children up-to-date on immunizations. By not delaying immunizations, children can be better protected against preventable diseases like measles and chickenpox, especially if they have a weakened immune system.
Summer is all about heading outdoors for fun activities, fresh air, and to soak in some Vitamin D from the sun. It’s important to remember that without protection, exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your skin in as little as 15 minutes. Over time, this can lead to skin cancer, which is the most common cancer in the U.S. Fortunately, most skin cancers can be prevented. Here are some of the best ways to help protect you and your family.
