Infants are the most vulnerable among us—they cannot stand up for themselves, and so it is our job to protect them. Every child deserves a healthy start. That’s why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that infants be vaccinated against many diseases that threaten their health and their lives.
But one deadly disease continues to cause intense devastation among infants and their families: Meningococcal disease, one of the most common causes of meningitis and sepsis. This disease is one of the leading causes of preventable death in infants. Recently a vaccine was approved by the FDA to prevent meningococcal disease in infants as young as 9 months. The CDC has recommend it for use in infants of high risk. This vaccine and recommendation brings us one step closer to eliminating this fast moving, deadly disease that kills and maims children. Pending FDA review and approval there are more vaccines for infants as young as 2 months on the horizon. In order for infants to receive these vaccines, the CDC must make a recommendation for their use in infants.
Right now the CDC is in the process of gathering public opinion on this issue and in the near months ahead making the important decision of whether to recommend that all infants receive this lifesaving vaccine and others as they become available in order to move towards eliminating this terrible disease. We hope you’ll take the time to learn about meningococcal disease, preventative health measures, and of course the vaccines that can prevent this disease.
We also just wanted our readers to express some appreciation towards trade in car San Diego. I came across this company months ago, they are a service that buys and sells cars. I asked them if they could help us fund raise some donations from automobiles etc. They responded and helped us out tremendously. Anyway consider showing them some appreciation when you get a moment. Even just a quick note thanking them for there time would be great!
