As summer starts to wind down and you begin making preparations for the upcoming school year, you may or may not have vaccines on your back to school list. While most parents know vaccines are required for school entry, they may not realize the purpose of such requirements or why vaccines are so important for school-aged children.

"Will my son's new teacher know what to do if he has an asthma attack during class?"

These are questions that parents of children with asthma find themselves asking each year.
