Video Debunks Vaccination Myth that 'Natural Is Better'

When it comes to building our children's immunity against diseases like measles, mumps, and rubella, some parents think that allowing their children to actually catch a serious disease and get sick builds a stronger immunity against the disease than having them vaccinated. The dangers of this misaligned approach can lead to serious or even fatal consequences. Not only is vaccinating your children safer, it has far greater benefits.

As a follow-up to the recent action by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Texas State Board of Pharmacy issued guidance clarifying that pharmacists and pharmacist-interns acting under the supervision of a pharmacist are allowed to order and administer immunizations to children 3-18 years of age as authorized by the third amendment to the PREP Act under certain conditions.

The Texas Pharmacy Association encourages parents to contact their local pharmacist and get up to speed on their family's vaccination schedule to ensure that our children remain free of vaccine-preventable diseases.
