August is National Immunization Awareness Month. Only about three-quarters of Min- nesota children overall - and as few as one-quarter of children in Marshall, Pennington, and Red Lake counties in Minnesotal - have received the rec- ommended vaccinations. Hispanic and African American populations also lag up to 20% behind the white population in vaccination rates .2 "Our goal is to surpass 90% as a standard for vaccinations," said Peter Dehnel, M.D Medical Director of Children's Physician Network. "Up- to-date vaccinations are critical not only to us as individuals, but to the en- tire population. Serious diseases that we thought had been eradicated in the United Statesare making a comeback." Recent outbreaks of measles, mumps, and whooping cough show that these diseases have not been com- pletely controlled. Over the past two years, several children in California have been killed by whooping cough. In 2008, an outbreak of invasive Hib disease in Minnesota was the largest outbreak since 1992and killed one un- vaccinated infant.3 Amy Gilbert, M.D a family physi- cian and chair of the MMA's Public Health Committee, says that vaccina- tions are the most effective way to en- sure that these diseases - ranging from measles to polio to whooping cough - don't become serious public health .threats, like they weremany decades ago. "It's heartbreaking to see vaccine- preventable illness affecting people in Minnesota. In Minnesota, that should never happen and doesn't need to. As children head back to school, vaccines are crucial for children to protect them- selves and others." "The simplest prevention is to fol- low the immunization guidelines set by our country's leading infectious disease experts and pediatricians," said Dr. Dehnel. Immunization schedules Minnesota's recommended immu- nization schedule includes: DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertus- sis), IPV (polio), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), varicella (chicken pox), PCV (pneumococcal), hepatitis A and hepatitis B, rotavirus, influenza and Haemophilus (Hib) vaccinations for infants and young children; Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertus- sis), MCV (meningococcal), influenza, and HPV (human papillomavirus) vac- cinations for children ages 7 to 18; Td (tetanus, diphtheria) vaccina- tions every 10 years as adults Getting shots at the right ages is im- portant, but it is never too late to catch up. Please see the full schedule of vac- cinations under state vaccination law at: idepc/immunize/laws/index.html Minnesotans may also call the Min- nesota Department of Health at 1-800- 657-3970 or 651-201-5503 Immunization advocates unite Improving vaccination rates and ed- ucating the public about the need for vaccinations is one of the top pubic health priorities of the MMA, which represents about 11,000 physicians in Minnesota. Children's Physician Network is a network of pediatric clinics advocating for complete and up-to-date vaccina- tions in Minnesota Primary care clin- ics include All About Children Pediatrics, Central Pediatrics, Chil- dren's Primary Clinics, TAMS, Dakota Pediatric Clinic, Drs. Rogers & Ny- gren, Eagan Valley Pediatrics, Edina Pediatrics, Fridley Children's & Teenagers' Medical Center, Mendakota Pediatrics, Northeast Pediatric Clinic, Northern Lights Pediatric & Adoles- cent Medicine, Partners in Pediatrics, Pediatric & Young Adult Medicine, Pe- diatric & Adolescent Care of Min- nesota, Pediatric Services, South Lake Pediatrics, Southdale Pediatric Associ- ates, and Wayzata Children's Clinic. "Vaccines are safe, necessary, and one of the most important contributors to public health," said Dr. Jennifer White Gobel, of Mendakota Pediatrics in West St. Paul. "Pediatricians wish to send a. unified message to Min- nesotans that now is the time for all of us to make sure that our young children and our teenagers, as well as ourselves, have the vaccines we need to protect both the individual and the population as a whole." About the Children's Physician Ne t- work Children's Physician Network is an 11-county pediatric clinician network ~iiming to improve the health status of children and adolescents, serve patients in all health plans, and unify the com- munity behind pediatric health care is- sues.
