My child has
At Cook Children's we get where you're coming from. After all, caring for kids is our number one priority too. And, like you, most of us are parents, so we can relate to your dilemmas. For that reason, we have gathered together the health information and the resources that will be the most helpful to you.
We're parents too. And as parents we follow the same guidelines that we recommend to our patients and their families. The doctors and caregivers at Cook Children’s believe in immunizations and vaccinate our very own children. Just like you, we want to protect them from unnecessary harm.
Some important - and sometimes humorous - words on immunizations from our doctors, nurses and parents:
Find out what diseases are on the rise, when to get immunized, and where to get immunized. There's even information on free and low-cost immunizations so no one has to go unprotected.
Cook Children's pediatricians are excellent at treating infectious diseases. There, however, times when a specialist is required, such as an infectious disease that can spread throughout the body in only a matter of hours. In these cases, specialized care is required. Under the leadership of Donald K. Murphey, M.D., the Cook Children's Infectious Disease Program is here to offer your child the latest in care. And if your child requires a hospital stay, you can trust that everyone on our team will be working to return your child to as normal a childhood as possible.
