Students will be headed back to class soon, and many parents have begun the preparations. And, the Department of Health and Hospitals wants to make sure that residents don’t forget one vital piece of the back to school equation — vaccinations.
“I want to remind parents of their responsibility, ensuring that their children receive the shots they need,” said DHH Secretary Kathy Kliebert in a recent release. “Vaccination is a simple process with big rewards. These vaccines help keep children healthy, so they can spend more days in the classroom and out of the doctor’s office.”
