On Thursday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News, pediatrician Dr. Cheryl Landry talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the importance of back-to-school vaccination for children.

The new school year will start this month, and many children will require vaccinations before the year stars. Landry said that, primarily, the groups who need vaccinations are preschoolers 4 to 5 years old, 7th graders, and freshman going into college. Landry also added that one important vaccine students may need is the Gardisil vaccine, which protects against human papillomavirus (HPV) and cervical cancer in girls. However, she also said boys may need the vaccine as well, as they can carry the disease without being aware of it.

Vaccinations for all ages are available at Dr. Landry’s practice at West Texas Pediatrics. For more information, visit their website at
