Abstract
Childcare includes nursery or preschool programs (4K and younger) or any licensed childcare center. Children enrolled in childcare must be up to date on the following shots based on their age: Hepatitis B, DTaP (whooping cough, tetanus), Polio, Pneumococcal (pneumonia), Haemophilus influenzae Type b (Hib), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), Varicella (chickenpox). Infectious diseases such as measles, chicken pox, and whooping cough can spread quickly among babies and children who haven’t had their shots. That’s why it’s so important to vaccinate all children. Vaccines are proven to be safe and effective. Children who are fully vaccinated by age 2 are protected against 14 harmful diseases.
