It's a word we hear every day, "vaccination." However, this time it’s not for COVID-19, instead, the 26-million estimated missed vaccine doses for preventable diseases and infections like chickenpox, shingles, measles, and hepatitis B.
According to new analysis, vaccination rates plummeted during the pandemic which could have a dramatic effect on our nation's health. Dr. Karen Smith, MD, was named 2017 National Family Physician of the Year by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP). She explains why now is the time to catch up on recommended immunization schedules.
