From Mohamad Khraizat, Director, Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools
Welcome back to school!
The excitement of returning to school can sometimes be accompanied by stressors, and it's essential to address these challenges, especially after the rollercoaster ride we've all experienced recently. Over the years, back-to-school stressors have become a natural part of the educational journey. But lately, the past couple of years have brought some unique challenges, intensifying the emotional and psychological impact on our youth. Social isolation, screen fatigue, and concerns about academic progress have all added to the load our students are carrying.
Moreover, many students face emotional hurdles related to school transitions, peer pressure, social media, and academic and athletic performance, leading to increased cases of anxiety and depression. It’s more critical than ever to ensure our children have a solid foundation of health and immunity. This is where annual immunizations come into play. Here's why they matter:
It's crucial to remember that vaccines are safe and thoroughly tested for efficacy. However, vaccine rates for certain diseases have seen declines in recent years due to misinformation and vaccine hesitancy. As parents, educators, and healthcare professionals, it's our collective responsibility to address and counteract these trends. If you have any questions about vaccines, please refer to trusted sources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or the World Health Organization (WHO).
I encourage everyone to prioritize immunization. Take a moment to check your child's vaccination records and consult with your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns. Let's ensure that our students, teachers, and school staff are protected not only from academic and work-related stressors but also from vaccine-preventable diseases.
The Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools is deeply committed to promoting the physical and behavioral well-being of our youth. Let's remember that the health of our children is a shared responsibility. By making annual immunizations a priority, we can collectively create a safer and healthier learning environment for all.
