Many families are focused on summer vacation, but it’s also time to think about school vaccinations. Director of Kewaunee County Public Health Department Cindy Kinnard advises that families vaccinate their children as soon as possible to prevent spreading diseases to their classmates in the fall. Kinnard says the misconceptions of immunizations being harmful are false.
Kinnard says every child, no matter what age, should receive a vaccination. Overall, Kinnard suggests making an appointment before September, that’s when spots tend to fill up.
