April 24-30, 2021 is World Immunization Week. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "Immunization saves millions of lives every year and is widely recognized as one of the world's most successful health interventions". ALSO DON'T FORGET YOUR INCOMING 7TH GRADER WILL NEED A Tdap BEFORE STARTING SCHOOL IN THE FALL.

Don't forget -- we are still navigating through the Covid-19 pandemic. Remember the 4W's each day: Wear a mask, Wash your hands, Watch your distance, and Wipe down surfaces.
