Our presentation this month is titled “Pediactric Vaccinations.”

Our presenter is Victoria Geldart, CMA (AAMA), and is a Primary CMA (AAMA) with Fidalgo Medical Associates of Island Hospital.

Victoria will discuss the following:
* Site/location of injection.
* PPD.
* Appropriate age to vaccinate.
* Educating patient and parents.
* After care.
Attendees to this presentation will be able to understand the reasoning why healthcare advises to vaccinate our children, how to perform an injection to the correct site, when to perform various vaccines as are required a timely series, educate patients as well as parents, wear appropriate protective gear, and aftercare. This will be an interesting topic that will provide good information to those who have involvement in this medical niche.

This meeting will also include our Christmas Pot Luck. Everyone is encouraged to bring their favorite dish and share some holiday joy and cheer. Hope to see everyone there.
