Let’s face it…kids are going to play and move in ways that can cause minor cuts and bruises on bony areas of the body, like knees and foreheads.

However, signs of bruising or trauma in some areas of a child’s body can be red flags for possible abuse, especially for children 4-years-old and younger.

The graphic below provides a quick reference for families or caregivers concerned about potential abuse.

Individuals can report suspected child abuse online at https://childabuse. illinois.gov OR… In an emergency, call 1-800-25-ABUSE (252-2873).

09/14/2023

Taking children to regular well-child appointments and sticking to recommended vaccine schedules are two of the most effective ways to protect children and the community from serious, easily spread diseases.

However many children missed check-ups and/or recommended childhood vaccinations over the past few years.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend that families:
• catch children up on routine childhood vaccinations, and
• get well-child doctor visits and regular checkups back on track for school, child care, and beyond.

Vaccines are important for your child at all ages.
