The Importance of Immunizing Your Child

Dear Parents,

The Dearborn Public Schools would like to take this opportunity to remind you about the importance of immunizing your child. Immunizations are one of the most effective measures to protect children from harmful diseases and even death.  All children who attend school in Michigan are required by state law to be fully immunized.
Vaccination is one of the best ways parents can protect infants, children, and teens from 16 potentially harmful viral and bacterial diseases including the following:  Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Bacterial Meningitis, Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Hepatitis B, and Chickenpox.
Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization, or even be deadly–especially in infants and young children.
Although we have not had any cases of students with Chickenpox in Dearborn Public Schools, the Wayne County Health Department has informed us of several new cases being reported throughout Wayne County. There is no reason to be overly alarmed, but we felt it was important to share this information with our parents.
If you would like more information on immunizing your child and counsel in regards to the health benefits and risks of immunizations, please contact your primary care physician, one of the urgent care facilities in our city, the Wayne County Health Department, or visit  Michigan Department of Health and Human Services website.
Regards,
The Dearborn School Nurses
