A local doctor offered four tips this week to help parents as the school year begins Thursday in Vacaville.
Dr. Jeff Gaborko, a pediatrician at Kaiser Permanente in Vacaville, recommends: Get required immunizations.
“One of the best ways to ensure a successful start to the school year is making sure your child is healthy,” Gaborko said in a prepared release. “Children who miss school because of illness often fall behind and have a hard time catching up to the rest of the class. Making sure your child has the proper immunizations can protect him or her from common childhood diseases and other contagious illnesses throughout the school year.”
