CSP Spotlight: Protect Children from Preventable Diseases

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommended immunization schedule for children 0-6 years old protects children from 14 vaccine-preventable diseases.  The schedule is designed to provide protection early in life, before children are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases.

Immunization keeps children healthy so that they can spend more time learning, growing and socializing with peers. Do your part to protect our children, families and communities against preventable diseases. To learn more about vaccinations visit cdc.gov/vaccines/parents.

Recommended immunizations help protect infants and young children from 14 diseases:

  • Chickenpox
  • Diphtheria
  • Flu (influenza)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hib
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Pneumococcal
  • Rotavirus
  • Rubella
  • Tetanus
  • Whooping cough (pertussis)

Community Service Programs of West Alabama (CSP), Inc.’s Head Start/Early Head Start, Child Care Partnership, and Early Intervention programs engage families and encourage healthy lifestyle choices. Safe and healthy children are ready to learn and explore their world.
