Mother’s Day Lost
May 12, 2014
Today we highlight a new blog called Vaccines Rock, which is part of a new national campaign from Meningitis Angel’s called “Don’t Wait 2 Late 2 Vaccinate!”
The blog will feature immunization news and information for teens and adults so that they can understand how best to protect themselves and their children from vaccine-preventable diseases. While this particular blog will address all diseases and the vaccines available to prevent them, it will have a strong focus on meningococcal and pneumococcal meningitis.
The first post was written for Mother’s Day by Frankie, a mother who lost her son to meningococcal meningitis. Her story reminds us that although parents want to do everything possible to protect their children, they may not be fully aware of all the available vaccines that can help them to do that.
