GAITHERSBURG, MD, August 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Farnoush Jamali, pediatrician in Gaithersburg, encourages her patients to get necessary immunizations before the start of the new school year. August is National Immunization Awareness Month and highlights the need for improving national immunization coverage levels. Now is the perfect time for the Gaithersburg pediatrician to promote vaccines and remind family and friends to get caught up on their shots.
"Many parents have concerns about vaccinating their children. Some fear that the immunizations could possibly infect their child with the disease it was intended to protect against. This has been proven inaccurate and we want tour patients to know their children have a significantly higher risk of getting infection without these vaccinations," said Dr. Jamali, Gaithersburg, MD pediatrician.
Immunizations or vaccines are used to protect the immune system against various infections and diseases. By injecting small amounts of killed or weakened microorganisms into the bloodstream, the body will produce antibodies designed to fight off that infection. Because the injected microorganisms are weakened or dead, the body will not become infected with the disease. Instead, the antibodies that are produced will stay in the body and will be able to fight off future infections of the disease before they can become serious.
As medical science has advanced, more and more vaccinations have become available and widely used. Each one serves a purpose and can protect patients and their children from a harmful disease or infection.
