Information About Polio

August 16th, 2022 abcdpedi

Polio can cause serious illness in some people.  Because of this, we routinely immunize our patients to protect them against Polio infection.   Polio vaccines are routinely given at our patient’s 2 month, 4 month, 6month, and 4 year old well visits.  The polio vaccine is 99% effective at preventing serious polio illness, and we recommend that all of our patients be fully immunized.

More information here.

Information on Monkeypox

August 9th, 2022 abcdpedi

Currently, the risk of monkeypox infection to the public remains low. Individuals should be aware of the symptoms of monkeypox and seek medical attention if they experience new, unexplained rashes or skin lesions. Recently identified cases have involved skin lesions in the genital, groin, and anal regions that might be confused with rashes caused by common diseases such as herpes and syphilis. Other early symptoms of monkeypox include fever, chills, and swollen lymph nodes. More information here.
