Doctor reminds parents to update children’s shot records

Texas children will be heading back to school soon and a Central Texas doctor says before they do, they should head to their doctor's office...to make sure their shot records are current. He says “another vaccine recommended for children going into junior high would be the HPV vaccine which prevents cervical cancer in women, but it also prevent penile cancer in boys.” Dr. Berg also notes parents should also get immunized against pertussis to protect younger children. He says older people should be immunized against pneumonia and travelers should take precautions to protect themselves against diseases prevalent in countries they're visiting. He says when parents take their children to a doctor for shots, they should have their immunization records with them, so doctors will know exactly what vaccines they need.
