WEDNESDAY: Back to School Health
BACK TO SCHOOL HEALTH (Kellie Hanna) -- There are vaccinations that are required for different ages before they can go back to school.
Dr. Wendy Anderson-Willis, a pediatrician from Nationwide Children's Hospital, says there are some vaccinations that are vital to your child's health. Those include: influenza, chicken pox, and meningitis.
Anderson-Willis says parents should get vaccines as well and make sure they are current.
Another simple thing students can do to stay well is to wash their hands after the bathroom and before eating. This will help prevent colds, pinkeye, mono, strep throat, and fifth's disease.
There are also worm and fungal diseases that can be treated at home, but parents should always call their family doctor first.
