College Bound Child?

July 26th, 2007

Do you have a child bound for college this fall?

The Centers for Diease Control (CDC), strongly recommends that students who will be living in a dormatory type setting receive the Meningitis Vaccine prior to heading off to school this fall. The physicians at Troy family Practice agree with this assessment. We also feel that this is an opportune time for your son or daughter to come in for a general health check up and a re-evaluation of their immunization records.

In addition to the Meningitis vaccine many colleges and universities also recommend the following: Hepatitis B Vaccine, Heptitis A Vaccine and Tetanus Booster.
