If you’re traveling abroad this summer, make sure your kids are up to date with vaccines. You can check www.cdc.gov/travel to see if you need typhoid vaccine or malaria prophylaxis for any countries you’ll visit.
Here are some links about summer safety and travelling with kids and an article about preventing bug bites:

Preventing Bug Bites
An outbreak of measles in Memphis was reported recently among unvaccinated individuals.
This most definitely could happen in this county. We urge all you parents to immunize your kids with the MMR as well as all the other vaccines.
Many visits to the hospital ER aren’t necessary. Fever over 102 in toddlers is common and rarely serious. The same goes for rashes at any age. See the files All About Fever and Common Concerns elsewhere on this website.So unless it’s an obvious emergency, please call us first – 462-5401 – to discuss your child’s symptoms.
SB277 is now the law of the land (at least California). This law mandates all California children must receive all recommended immunizations. Only kids with serious medical contraindications or home-schooled children are exempt. Read about this here.
In the last few years, several outbreaks of meningitis have occurred at college campuses around the country, including Santa Clara University. Bexsero is a new vaccine to prevent this particular kind of meningitis. It’s recommended for college freshmen who will live in dorms and also kids with immune deficiency. Healthy adolescents may also receive it. Bexsero is closely related to another shot we’ve given for many years.
